The Grimm Forest

3rd Year Digital Storytelling

Brief: Create an interactive visual novel demo in Unity based on a fairy tale. 

I decided for more creative freedom, to create a story that allowed for multiple characters inspired by the Grimm brothers. To do this I created a massive forest with the idea that characters from the different story worlds had somehow collided into one place.

When the player ventures into the forest they run into different environments and scenarios with these characters, each with different backgrounds.

For the animal sprites I took real pictures as a rough reference and gave them a cel shaded look for a clean finish.

All the sprites above were sketched, lined and coloured in Photoshop.
