Well, this time I move away from horror and darkness and I would like to create a very short adventure game (1st person) focused in exploration of the environment with an original story and simple but logical puzzles. Beautiful environments and without fear of dying!

The original soundtrack is being composed by Python Blue (many thanks!).

Game Jolt page:
https://gamejolt.com/games/Numen/418894

TITLE:
NUMEN
The Path of the Gods

STORY
The gods have always helped the Curugan people when they needed them. Diseases, famine, natural catastrophes... But for years, the gods have not appeared and the Curugan people are dying little by little due to a strange disease. The situation is desperate so the council of ancients decides to send someone in search of the gods to ask for their help. The chosen one is Noah, the young disciple of the shaman of the town. Although he is young and inexperienced, he is strong, intelligent and the only one, after the shaman, who has enough knowledge to succeed in such a task.

Noah marches to the land of the gods, where only the shamans have been. After months of travel, he finally arrives at the entrance to the land of the gods. He knows that his people don't have much time left, so he goes into the place in the hope of finding the gods.

MAIN FEATURES:
- First-person exploration adventure game
- Beautiful and detailed graphics (3D in real time)
- Original and interesting story
- Simple but logical puzzles
- Inspired in games like Myst
- Explore freely without fear of dying
- Original soundtrack composed by Python Blue


INSPIRATION:
Mainly the Myst saga, but also other games like Quern, The Eyes of Ara, the Rhem saga or the Schizm games.

I'm going to use my usual tools: Unity, 3ds Max, Quixel Suite, Photoshop and old assets... and my magic!


As always, the idea is clear but this is a jam and I never know how it will end, that's the fun!

I will publish the progress.

Your blockout is fun, I don't often see that. Looks like a 3D blueprint! Laughing

Hahaha, thanks guys!

@Simon:
Whenever I can, I like to make the blockout, it helps me a lot to see the real composition of the elements and then it's easier and faster to create the final scene. But in jams I don't usually do it since it takes time...

Well, finally I think I have the title:
NUMEN - The path of the gods

You can see the full meaning of NUMEN here, but basically it's a Latin term for "divinity", or a "divine presence", "divine will."

I have also created the page in Game Jolt and I have started a small Devlog, I will try to share the progress but I don't promise anything, hahaha.

Hey thanks for naming your hero like my son! I appreciate.
I really like the idea of your game. Can't wait to see what you can achieve for the jam.

Good luck!

Ok, my entry is slower than I expected, but keep going. Meanwhile, I've created a new article about the process we follow for the music creation (thanks to Python Blue).

After several days working on a new design for my entry, I had to make some changes... or I'll not finish on time.

Here you have a new devlog entry, and first WIP image!
