With Melancholy.Hope we aim to show the whole scale of the process how one's thoughts and emotional experience become actions at first, and then might form the part of the societies' rules and regulations. To show how the importance that one gives to his personal world correlates with the outer worlds' reaction, and how one should perceive himself and others in order to be as close to his personal happiness as possible.
The game will tell us about a little boy called Jorgen, who prefers his personal imaginary world to the distorted and almost ruined place he lives in. After accidentally getting involved into the series of strange circumstances, and meeting people he slowly starts to care about, Jorgen opens his eyes to the world around him, and finds himself in position to make decisions that will not only affect himself and his loved ones, but might change the fate of humanity itself...
Gameplay in Melancholy.Hope will consist of two main parts: first one is a 2d platformer set in the real world, which will be mostly used for exploration, communication with other characters and navigation between the places of interest which will trigger the second part - Jorgen's' imagination, shown as a set of different mini-games, which will serve as a abstract representation of his emotional experiences and thinking process. Most of the mini-games will be re-accessible throughout the game, and their content will change depending on the main story state.
As our team believes the devil is in the details, and it becomes very important when it comes to visuals. In order to create as solid experience as possible, we will go from the simplistic and cartoon-like image in the beginning to the more detailed and realistic picture at the end of the game following the process of Jorgen's perception development.
