The World of Pah (Adventure Jam 2017) [Juanjo]

Post by Juanjo_LS on 5th May 2017, 16:54

UPDATED

As you all know I have had a complicated week and due to this I have not been able to work on my entry for Adventure Jam 2017, so I had to change my original idea for a less complicated and simpler one.

I hope you like it!




STORY:
We are Pah, a minor God who inhabits in the floating islands, an idyllic and perfect place, without obligations or rules... a perfect world, our world. One day we wake up and discover a wooden bridge that was not there before and seems to have no end. Who put that bridge there? And why now? What is on the other side? Do we really want to leave our wonderful world?

Only crossing the bridge we will discover what mystery is hidden behind him and perhaps we can find out who and why has put it there.

The World of Pah is a contemplative first person exploration game that has been created by one person in 15 days for Adventure Jam 2017, so the experience will be very simple but I hope you have fun and enjoy!


I also created the page in Game Jolt, so if you want to follow the development progress you can visit it:
http://gamejolt.com/games/pah/254186

Anyway I will try to share here the progress.

And this is all for the moment, I'm super happy and excited... I can finally start with the development!

PS: As always sorry for my English... you know ;-)

That will be a very interesting project and experiment Juanjo! For once it doesn't seem too dark (but I wait to see the first screenshots ^^)
I love the references you gave, the concept sounds solid and everything looks ambitious (you already have a list of features! wow. I still don't know what I will do, I just droped some ideas, but you're ready to go. Impressive).

Indeed as you say, it sounds more like a walk simulator, but if the environments are gorgeous, where's the problem? Smile The theme of the jam, Adventure, is vast and doesn't necessarily mean that there must be complicated puzzles and long stories. It's all about discovery and immersion. Bring us some inspiration with a beautiful world (Iborea was inspiring!)
Just do your best, have fun, and good luck!

I will try to follow your devlog on gamejolt (I will create one too) but you know that I am more active here on the Icehouse forums, so I'll be looking for your updates on both sites.

Thanks Simon for your kind words!

And yes, I want to immerse the player in the environment and the experience is to explore and discover although as I say I will try to add interactive elements so that you can take objects, examine them or even read documents ... we will see :-)

I'll be watching your devlog as well.

COME ON!!

Warning!!!!!
Myst 3 was named Exile.

How about Displaced: Path to Redemption or Cast Out:Path to Redemption. I had thought about Oucast, but that has been used before as well

Yep, thanks Roger I know it ^_^

I have put the title intentionally (can be my little tribute) although it is not definitive, but I like it so it is possible that it stays that way...

Happy that you are happy. Just raising an issue. Wishing you all the best anyway! (and Simon, and anyone else we/I know!) Have fun (which I am sure you will, even if you feel mentally flattened by everything at the end of it).

Me I have exams and assignments to do, and a multiplicity of plotlines for all the amazing concepts that my mind is developing, so for now, back to the recorded lectures!!!!!!!! Today tomorrow exams and tests - the future domination of the universe!

Project Status (after 2nd day):

Ahhh! Today I have not be able to work in my project  Crying or Very sad

But yesterday I made some progress with the map, in fact I already have the terrain  Laughing

First I tried to create directly with Unity terrain editor, but the results did not convince me:


So I finally made a heightmap in Photoshop and the result is this:


It took me all afternoon and all night but it was worth it. The terrain is large, has 2000 x 2000 meters, but it is what I wanted. You can lose yourself in the beautiful landscape and discover the secrets of the land of exile... hahaha.

On the other hand, I have not had time to create the page in Game Jolt, I hope to create it tomorrow and start with the devlog.

Well, not bad for the second day... I hope to go faster from now and maybe I could have a prototype this week.

And this is all for the moment... As I said, I hope to go faster from now, stay tuned for more images and info!

PS: I applied a single texture to the terrain, so it doesn't look good, remember that all images are WIP.

Ok, this week has not started very well for me... a lot of work and besides I feel a little sick... allergy to pollen. Sad

So my progress with the project is very slow, if this week I have nothing playable maybe I will change to plan B: a project more small...

My devlog in Game Jolt will have to wait until I see how I progress this week...

Thanks guys for your kind words!

Today I'm feeling better but my head seems a globe, hahaha, I can't concentrate in anything (maybe due to medicines).

Finally I don't think I can continue with my original idea... tomorrow if I feel better I will try to find new ideas to do something... even if it's small, but I want to do something. 7 days are enough to create something interesting... I hope.

Thanks again for your support and I hope to do something small but surprising.

I'm glad you feel better!

Instead of a vast area to visit, maybe you can drive the player in narrow corridors (smaller places) like in Lenore? Forget the idea of journey and exploration for this jam (keep it for later). And focus on 2 or 3 rooms interconnected, in a world that you like.

Lenore was good. All that was missing (in my opinion) was more texts, in order to follow a short story. The story can be told with subtitles on screen (which you usuall do) or on papers and diaries to find in the different rooms.
Just focus on Spanish language only for the jam, and then you can translate into English later if you have the time and motivation.

Ok, after a disastrous week I can think of jam again. I have lost a week so I must change my original idea. Rethinking...

Maybe something like Simon says, a simple walking simulator with an interesting story... Today I will think of new ideas to start as soon as possible.

I will keep you informed Wink

Now what will you do? I'm curious and excited to discover your new plans. Good luck Juanjo, you can do it!!

Thanks Josiah!

And here the first WIP image for the floating islands (where the game starts and where Pah lives):



A lot of work comes, but I hope to finish this world over this weekend!
