This game has been worked on for 3 years now. It is a small team project, and I was responsible of developing the art style, characters, gameplay/design & story.
The game is made with Unreal Engine 4 and has been featured twice by Epic Games in their Unreal Spotlight.
Ruth's Journey is a demo releasing in Summer 2020 for a longer game called "The Long Way Home"  which is planned to release in 2021.
