Decent game. 4/5
Switch The Light
A downloadable game
There is a moment in life when everything seems to have turned dark.
Everything has lost its colours, only a hollow shell is left.
Will you find who you are?
Switch The Light is a short psychological 3D adventure realised as a project for my programming module. It features a fully functioning custom editor, that allows designers to easily create a system of complex interactions between in-game objects and the player without writing a single line of code!
The project has also been used as a chance to learn shaders development and integrate them with the code to create evocative visual effects.
The project is a prototype for a bigger and wider game, that I might decide to develop in the future.
The chosen design for Switch The Light was to create a custom system that would track the player’s
decisions and change the game environment and narrative accordingly. Along with this, the system
was to have a custom editor visible within Unity featuring an accessible UI and intuitive to use even
for someone who is not familiar with coding.
Switch The Light was also designed to be a psychological 3D adventure, thus the game had to
contain different VFX that would appeal to the player as well as have a deep meaning coherent with the narrative.
Please download the file attached (there are no viruses, I promise!) and unzip the folder, then press on the executable and enjoy the game!
The commands are as following:
• WASD to move the character
