The Land of Pain
About the Game:
The Land of Pain is: an adventure/horror game inspired by lovecraftian stories. It is focused on story, investigation and atmosphere.
You have decided to spend an autumn day in nature, but what was supposed to be a relaxing day, turns into a nightmare. You find yourself facing a spooky and unfamiliar place. You are lost and desperately looking for a safe place where you can spend the upcoming night. But where can you really be safe? You are about to make an upsetting discovery, but will you survive to reveal it to the world? Something is watching you in the darkness.
You will have to survive in a mysterious and unknown place, find notes and clues to understand what is happening and discover the way to proceed by using objects that you can find around. It will not be easy because there is something in the woods that is observing you and waiting for your misstep to kill you. You will have to explore the environment and the buildings, hoping to find someone who can give you some help, but the more you will explore, the more you will be vulnerable. You will have to be very careful, hiding yourself and trying to survive from the threats. In the Land of Pain you are unarmed and defenseless. The only way to escape is to run as fast as you can and exploit the environment to hide. To maximize the immersion, the player will be able to examine many objects: the interaction with one of them will make a protagonist's description appear. The interface is planned to be less invasive as possible: the objects collected will be shown directly at the bottom right of the screen. The Protagonist will have a diary where he will write the strange things that are happening to him.
The game world:
The game world will be fully exploreable and varied, with forests, caves, underground structures, old buildings and swamps. The environment hides insidious dangers too, so you will have to be careful where you will put your feet.
The Land of Pain is constructed by using the Photgrammetry technique, a technology that allows to transfer real objects in the game world. There will be many objects created with this technology, even big assets like entire houses.
