The Art of ÆNiGMA
A personal project that I am doing concept art for between client work to push my boundaries, and is being designed as a theoretical video game. I will be focusing on mainly Environment Design with the odd Character. There will be content added to this page regularly.
Ænigma is a cyberpunk fantasy hack n slash game taking place in the far future in a massive explorable city with branching off more linear levels seemingly in entire different realities. The story goes that after a bizzare event in the past where the planet started to spawn bizarre things as if it was dreaming, most of the planet became inhabitable, leaving just a few areas and the trains between them habitable thanks to strange man made structures. While looking out can be anything from horrifying to beautiful, those who leave the protection of these structures most certainly die, there is only one who walked back in, you. The story centers on you, Blake Surtofski as you go from a quiet farm town to the massive bustling city of Jonada to attend it's famous university, where the only thing stranger than the maze of streets in Jonada, and the strange world outside them... is the people you meet. The story is for anyone that wants to know why we should make our own purpose in life and help our friends find theirs.
Ridgewood is the starting farm village, it is meant to train the players in the format the game will play out
Jonada is a massive city built after the restructuring of the planet, The city is so massive that some parts have very different climates. While there is new and old tech everywhere in city The higher in the sky generally the newer the structures. The city has 3 main sections: Hi, Mid, and Underground. While generally a maze there is a massive gap down the center of the city that you can gain access to all the layers, this area is called:
Bridge leading to the University of Jonada
University of Jonada
A large University above most of the city that you attend
Your home base so to speak, you can customize it as well as get bigger rooms eventually
The main character, while growing up Blake was energetic, naive, and ambitious, just trying to fit in, then as he got older, he grew more and more introverted and feared being hurt. Not wanting others to be as lonely as him, he often dreamt of being as ambitious as he was a kid, a leader. Blake thought maybe when he moved to Jonada, he could reinvent himself with the ambition his childhood self would be inspired by, to be the person he would want to meet..
Befor he moves to Jonada he just wears simple clothing but once he moves to the big city he quickly learns... Style is Everything in Jonada,
