FELIPE CUMARU ROLES: UI/UX AND SUPPORT GAME DESIGN DECISIONS

A disturbing event in a hotel, reenacted by the
perspectives of a guest, a night watcher and a stranger.

2nd Circle of Hell and Rashomon Effect.

We used the ratio 9: 3 units, similar to the construction of Dante's Divine Comedy, one of the references to the game.

The Divine Comedy is divided into 3 books (Hell, Purgatory and Paradise) and each book has 33 corners (where Hell has an extra corner, which serves as an introduction)

Navigation are based on "fade-to-black" teleport, 
to minimize motion sickness. 
 




We need to reinforce the environment exploration. To do this, we hide waypoints when reticle is out of collider range.
