FIREFLIES

GAME DESIGN DOCUMENT - Naomi Saka
Technische Hochschule Georg Simon Ohm

Setting

An old Japanese tale (火垂るの月 Hotaru no Gatsu) tells the story of fire flies descending from the moon.
Once upon a time they left for earth and ever since can't find their way back home. In the night they appear and bathe in the moonlight.
Try to collect all appearing lights with your fireflies. If you collected the right colours the fireflies can fly back to the moon.
Your experience enhances as each level adds a new layer of music.

Conflict

No black rectangles.
The analog world is the art of telling a story in one image. But the digital world is dynamic. It enables us to make materials active and create new interfaces. These hybrid interfaces are using the best of both worlds: the authenticity of materials and the layers of information we can add with the digigtal world.
The simpliest example is us as kids, shining light through a glass and admiring the refractions on the table. Up to art installations using the principle of light and materias to create new dimensions.
