Springvale: Vestigial Melody

Before Springvale: Tempered Stone took shape, we started by building a “proof-of-concept” game in Unity. We ultimately changed the direction for Springvale: Tempered Stone, so this 3d concept game became known as “Springvale: Vestigial Melody,” and we decided to wrap up the project anyway. While it’s no longer a good representation of the Tempered Stone project, it’s now a playable “demo” of what we can pull together with very limited resources. Our main focus form SV:VM was:

  • Story
  • Characterization
  • Music

During the development process we learned a lot about the resources it takes to create a great video game. We worked with a writer, a concept artist, and a 3d artist, as well as voice actors and musicians. There were some setbacks along the way, but each of these provided a unique opportunity for us to analyze and asses our process, which lets us better predict and better overcome any future roadblocks.
