SAFETY PROTOCOL is a narrative-driven, environmental puzzle game that lets you explore an eerie space station while chatting with the stations AI. Reactivate the hidden fuse boxes to increase your power supply. Distribute the power to the different areas inside the station to unlock new paths letting you delve deeper into the story.
THINGS THAT I DID
LEVEL DESIGN: I was responsible for all the level design in the game. I worked on everything from 2D-sketching, to grayboxing, to implementing final 3D assets.
NARRATIVE: I co-authored the narrative design and wrote all of the game's dialogue trees and message logs. I also planned the environmental storytelling.
COLLABORATION: Working closely with the other team disciplines in creating the UX, UI, power management mechanic, and overall game feel and mood.
EXPLORATION AND LIGHT PLATFORMING:
The player explores the station and traverses it in interesting ways while interacting with objects that unlock new paths and tell the story.
SUSPICION: The narrative is what drives the player forward. As you delve deeper into the space station you gradually begin to distrust the station's AI and its maker.
FIND POWER AND BUILD YOUR PATH:
The station's available power is a precious resource to the player which they must allocate carefully in order to open locked doors or power up rooms.
