Pacificus

An 8 day school project by first year game designers and 3D artists at FutureGames, Sweden.

Game concept

The world is in chaos, the surface is crumbling and debris is falling to the ocean floor. The powerful Trident has been misplaced and the ocean has been turned upside-down. You play as Pacificus, an ethereal being summoned to the depths by an ancient civilization whose world has been submerged by the waves and it is your purpose to restore the balance of the ocean. To do this you need to find the lost Trident, solve the ancient puzzles to uncover new sections of the deep and take the Trident back to its original location. By wielding the power of the Trident you can possess sea creatures and fish to aid you in your underwater adventure to restore order to the ocean.

Pacificus is a single player underwater puzzle adventure game where you use your surroundings as your platforms. Discover the ancient temple ruins in a beautiful underwater world filled with creatures and corals. Be amazed by the ambience of the deep as you roam the ocean and solve the puzzles of the temples.

Can you reach the end and place the Trident back at its original location, or will the oceans be doomed to remain upside down for eternity?

Use the power of the Trident to make your way through the temples and solve the ancient puzzles inside. Possess large fish to use as platforms and surf on them to traverse the ocean. The jellyfish will guide your way to the heart of the sea, where you can revert the ocean to its right rotation by placing the Trident back at its original location.

In the first puzzle you need to collect the tokens hidden around the temple, and place them in the slots to open the door to the next area.

In the second puzzle you need to match the icons on the pillars with the poses of the statues scattered on the ocean floor.

In the final puzzle you need to figure out the correst pattern to light up all the plates on the ground, which makes Trident's pillar emerge and you can place the Trident back to save the ocean from its chaotic state. At the end you are rewarded with an ending cinematic.

To help the player on their voyage are the large creatures of the ocean that can be possessed with the power of Trident. The player can control these creates and use them to scout the ocean, jump on them as platforms, or follow their trail towards the heart of the ocean.
