Bokida is a first-person 3D game. It's an interactive experience where the player is invited to explore a vast, beautiful and peculiar world.
Bokida's world is defined by two Stars : The Light one, the surface of which the player explores; and the Dark one, visible in the skies above. These two gigantic entities have been separated for a very long time, but the player's arrival marks a turning point in this equilibrium. Like two lovers longing to reunite after having been kept apart, these two stars finally have a chance to merge once again through the player's actions.
Exploration revolves around the playful manipulation of a set of digital "tools" that allow the player to engage and harness the virtual environment. The player can create unique, colorful structures and colonize the canvas of the computer screen. Hence, the dormant world of Bokida is gradually awakened and tamed, turning into a territory where the player toys with the simulated physics as she explores the majestic landscapes that surround her.
At the core of the experience, we designed a powerful digital toy bestowed upon the player who's free to playfully manipulate it. With this set of tools, the player can generate 3D structures, precisely cut and sculpt them and also push or blow away cut-off pieces and fragments, all of this in real time. Mechanics combine in a variety of ways to offer an experience almost sensual in nature, where the player is invited to express her creativity and to navigate the vast, open world according to her own motivations.
