UAT guest post: Are you losing your mind or is it your environment?
Imagine exploring an ancient forest and coming across a collapsed, rundown barn. As you explore deeper into the environment, you realize something is off. Small things are changing… it’s turning eerie… you are losing your sanity. As things go bump in the night, you’re fully immersed in The Madness Project, Game Art & Animation graduate Emily Szymanski’s Student Innovation Project (SIP). With a focus on environmental storytelling, The Madness Project shifts the environment between two states of mind: sanity and insanity. Walking through the environment, your character becomes restless as paranoia eats away at the mind. Your sanity is ticking down and the environment is turning sinister.
