Happy Sunday! Here’s a quick update on The Tomb.

As mentioned in prior posts, this is my first ever game jam that I’ve participated in! I’ve organized two, but never participated — and now that changes!

Building The Tomb has been a refreshing challenge in containing scope, which puts all those production skills I claim to have to the test. 😉

We’ve already had to cut down a few ideas such that we would have more time for testing and implementation; scope is a funny thing, but especially in such a short time.

Here’s a brief look at where we are right now, with a more in-depth final post coming tomorrow morning after we wrap the project up for submission!

This is a weird smorgasbord of our animation, characters, UI, dialogue system, and key room environment all in one place!

We’ve also got sound FX and UI sourced via Creative Commons 0 files (so no audio category for us in judging, regrettably!), and all scenes are set up. Now we’re doing final implementation and jumping into polishing and testing!

Tomorrow, we’ll have way more context on what this strange idea is, as well as an in-depth look at the entire experience.

Just remember: Death comes for us all!

UNBALANCED KARMA is a Interactive Storytelling Game which has as a main character a Young Gipsy Woman that was born and raised in Brazil, under the Colonial ruling of Portugal, in the 19th century, a little bit before the country becomes independent. She is strong, independent, a fortune teller and part of the romani traditions and culture. Many historical arquetypes are present in the game (the tax collector, the merchant, the wealthy noble man, the black man and woman) and it has a deep relation to the African-american religions, specially the Candomble, which is a brazilian interpretation of the Yoruba beliefs in the Orishas.

The game relates to the theme of Growing – as the character takes actions and uses her skills to foretell the future, so she makes choices that make her Karma grow, and has to deal with the consequences of it.

It has a profund meaning related to inner growing and self-awareness. Also, it presents many aspects and assets of the brazilian culture, history, society and manners. This is due the fact that the team intended to put elements of edutainment in its conception and development.

Along with the Game, we have produced also a Transmedia Project, called UnBalanced Project – which also has (and shall be developed soon) a Board Game, a Card Game, an Infographic and an E-Book with the continuation of the Game’s Narrative.
