AWAY is a short walking simulator made by myself for Global Game Jam 2022, Singapore.
The theme was Duality. My interpretation was to express the lingering memories of an individual who has departed. How do I manifest this idea across two realities, in the form of an ordinary object that reveals the story behind the prior existence of the individual?
To begin, I collected some images that I thought were close to my intended aesthetic. They served as cinematographic inspiration and art direction.
The environment modelling and design were inspired by Singaporean local scenes, specifically at dawn as the sunrays bathe the surfaces of apartments in a creamy glow.
