Virtual Dreamscape is an interactive fantasy world created by Game Designer, Minnamari Helmisaari, for which I wrote the narrative.
Based upon a recurring childhood dream, the landscape is stylised and stark, portrayed in colours of winter and ice. As one explores the terrain, using a game controller, words loom and disappear, as a child’s thoughts displayed on walls, behind trees, in hidden places. Alternately scared and delighted the player is swept along,as the phrases provide an invisible friend to accompany the journey.
The text is translated from English to Swedish and Finnish and the game can be played in any of the three different languages.
