The Way of Life
The Way of Life makes the player relive the same life’s experiences from the point of view of three characters of different ages: an adult, an old man and a child.
The experiences we want to tell about are very different, they go from a quarrel to a dream, and further to more serious topics like death and love. The main point about the game is that every experience will be told through different gameplay mechanics.
Also, every playable character has his own specific mechanics and a way to see the world.
The player throughout the game can explore and live different stories and feel a variety of emotions in an amusing and captivating experience.
With Knotmania we would like to explore an alien life form: the “Strings”, living entities in a structure of endless rooms. Strings energy runs the structure and to continue the journey one needs to unravel them thus cutting off the energy.
The core mechanic centers around a unique gameplay with an inventive approach to puzzle gaming, where the puzzle itself is a living creature. Each level begins with a twisted knot to tackle – it may be a single String or multiple Strings – and it sleeps awaiting your first touch. At the first gesture made, the strings wake up and begin to twist, embrace, and explore moving in slow graceful movements in zero gravity. They oppose change in order to remain twisted together.
The setting is made by abstract geometry rooms and the 3D soundscape by Fractures Audio immerges the idea of an alien environment
