Abstract

Original Music Soundtrack & Sound Design Composed & Implemented using Unity. As a departure from the normal approach for this genre, the music is arranged using just four instruments (piano, violin, cello and vocals). The piano forms the main basis for the storytelling, and interactive puzzles layer onto the supporting score.  The overall mood has been described by listeners as "beautifully haunting".  At the time of release, 'Into Light' was featured on the front page of the the App Store under "Best New Games".  'Into Light' is a magical adventure game that plays with words and puzzles. Caught inside a warzone, you escape to the tunnels beneath your city, and discover a locked gate.  In the darkness beyond is a labyrinth of rooms and tunnels and a strange magician who promises to help you find a way home, if you promise to help him in return.  But as he leads you deeper into the caves, you begin to wonder if he’s really leading you back to the light.   You can’t shake the feeling that something is following you.
