SWAN SONG

The final journey for an old sailor

Swan Song

2019

Swan Song was created by TBD Games, a team of 6 people, in 2 weeks for an experimental game design class. The game was created in Unity 2019.1.5f1, with models being created in Maya. The game focuses on the main character, a lonely captain on board a ship that used to have a full crew that have since moved on. The game progresses through the captain's imaginary dialogue with random objects found on the ship that he associates with his former comrades. The game explores isolation and loss, as well as what happens to our sense of identity when we are separated from society.
