Fear Is In The Mind

The mind plays tricks on you

An interactive 3D digital environment, designed around the idea that fear lives within your brain. The experience is intended as a dark and almost confusing, narrative journey, with secret areas to discover as you navigate through the darkness of your brain. The motto with the project is that 'fear is in the mind', resulting in a level layout that is linear with a strong emphasis on using very narrow and intimate spaces; whilst featuring some prospect locations, hidden within the experience. Rewarding users who think outside the box, so to speak, and do not follow the rules, was a secondary objective with the project. The design decision behind these objectives was to allow for events to happen within the journey that plays to the idea of fear being in the mind, but provide moments of opportunity to bypass certain sections of the experience, creating a brand new way to experience the environment. The final result is an unique journey through the mind, as you navigate past the difficulty's that are directed towards yourself as the player.

 

The level was created in Maya, with the final interactivity within the environment created in Unity. The digital environment has been uploaded to itch.io and can be played in your browser of choice here: https://lucas-graf.itch.io/fear-is-in-the-mind.

Whatever you decide, just remember, fear, is in the mind.
