Under the Rainbow prologue is a 3rd person adventure choice based game where you play as Kara Evans trying to solve the mystery of her best friend Dahlia Montgomery’s death. Explore full 3D environments, interact with the world to learn more about the story and speak with characters and choose from a range of dialogue options to learn about them and their stories.
The game is going to have a robust conversation system and choice based gameplay where almost everything you do will affect one part of the story ranging from one story points that would affect you learning the whole truth or just a small thing that focuses on a characters individual story.
It was made in Unity, programmed in C#, modelling of the characters was done in Maya, textured in Substance Painter.
This project initially started as a project under the name Murder Mystery Project. I made the project for my lecturer Lindsay Grace for an independent study. I wanted to create an adventure game in the style of Life is Strange and the Walking Dead with multiple conversation options. I worked on it by myself for 3 months while I was still a student at American University. There where time constraints because of my other classes and projects.
I always had an idea to create a murder mystery game inspired by the show Veronica Mars which is a TV show starring a teen trying to solve the murder of her friend. I started working on this game in 2014, designing ideas and writing the story and characters.
You play as Kara Evans and Ian McKay, two students trying to solve the mystery surrounding the murder of their friend, Dahlia Montgomery.
The game will be released soon.
