Water Aloft the Ridge
Water Aloft the Ridge is a 3D puzzle game in which you control three characters searching for a lost loved one on a mountain ridge -- a ridge that lore states is the entrance to the spiritual world. With help and guidance from mysterious Ravens, the isolated characters overcome obstacles both physical and spiritual, unaware of how their actions affect the others.
This full game was created over two semesters of intensive production. After pitching various game ideas in the spring semester of 2011,
myself and 30+ other graduating seniors started production on Water Aloft the Ridge, a 3D puzzle
adventure game made with the Unity game engine. After a preproduction phase,
the design team (myself included), art team, programming team, and sound
department went into full production lasting until May of 2012. We received
oversight from three instructors acting as producers, but otherwise were left
to make the game ourselves. The result is a finished puzzle game featuring
three characters and over an hour of gameplay.
