‘Journey of the Onset’ is an experiment in storytelling and player psychology. The experience is designed around the concept of ‘feeling correct’. Through an evocative narrative, the player gets invested in a world where the powerful manipulate populations through psychology and the occult. At the end of the game, the player is asked to consider the relationship between truth and power.
It is yet to be released.
My contributions to this project are as following:
- Game design
- Concept UI-design
To enhance the purpose of the experiment, I am aiming to add a neural network AI to process the data the player inputs. For this however I’ll first have to find additional funding.
