Where the Snow Settles is a narrative-driven adventure game that explores the fear of change and the growth that can blossom from periods of unknown. The narrative follows the journey of the protagonist as she looks for her sister and tries to understand her place in a desolate and supernatural world.
I’m the Creative Director on this project, which means that I’m often working on a wide range of tasks at any given time. This includes asset creation, environment design, narrative writing, design, determining visual style, communicating vision, and documentation (just to name a few!).
We’re working through this project as a way of learning about the full game development pipeline, and so far the experience has been invaluable. I’ve learned to work within tight constraints, understand the importance of respect and communication, and I’ve mastered the art of answering unknowns to solve all sorts of problems.
The game released on 23 July 2021 to Steam, Xbox, and itch.io.
