Go on a Journey to find out your truth...
Beyond The Underworld is a surreal Journey style game centered around a girl who discovers that she isn't in a normal world anymore
She discovers that she isn't exactly human either
You are in the afterlife...but why?
Explore a strange and surreal reality where spirits take form as glowing insects like butterflies, moths and dragonflies; all with their own personality trait
Butterflies are playful and are in a constant state of euphoria and eagerness to have fun, they are often found in groups
Moths are calm and are in a peaceful state of mind, they prefer calmly flying through this world
Dragonflies are curious and always have an eagerness to explore, they are found in many areas often going through each section
But the underworld isnt just full of spirits, it also has its own unique wildlife that have their own ecosystem like Jellyfish, Hummingbirds and Pedal Creatures
I want to make each world feel rich and unique, like that it has its own living breathing world
I don't have anything against walking simulators but I don't want this game to just be that; players should have the urge to explore and learn about this world and be rewarded when they do
Lore is experiment right now as i'm trying to build the player's and the world's story but its going along pretty well
But I know this game can be more, so that's why i'm coming to Kickstarter asking for the base amount of what I need to improve the game and pay development costs:
About me and how this game came to me...
My name is Andreas Dilling and i'm a solo developer using the Unreal Engine to create this game. I've had this idea in my head for a while now and have been thinking about it almost everyday so I learned even more about game development in hopes of creating my dream game and sharing it with the world.
I have had a love for the "Journey" style games and was originally inspired by Journey and The First Tree to create a game like this. One thing I don't see a lot in games is when the surrealness is cranked up by a lot; where almost everything doesn't resemble our world today.
Reality is something we are all used to, same color trees, same animals, same world. So I wanted to create a world where almost everything has a unique twist on it; blue grass, glowing insect spirits, new ecosystem, etc.
So any support at all, even if you don't donate, would be greatly appreciated.
Risks and challenges
There are plenty of risks when designing and publishing a game, for example budgeting and time management but im prepared for any issues that may come up.
Making sure it resonates well with audiences and that its a game that you guys would enjoy so taking feedback and using it to improve key features for the game is a must.
Of course there are also bug fixes, making sure the main mechanics work smoothly and that the game runs smoothly on the majority of computers but I will make sure not to rush the game and take my time to make sure things work properly
Risks and Challenges? Plenty but i'm eager to face them :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
