Our team consists of three people. Alex is responsable for gamedesign and programming; Daria works on graphic design, animation & leveldesign; Dari's task is art and promotion. We have met at the Imagine Cup Hackathon by Microsoft in late November 2014 in Saint-Petersburg (city where we are currently studing). During 24 hours the idea & concept of game have created and the first demo version has depeloped, although every person of team haven't any experience in game depelopment before. We are so inspired to continue work on our fist game project OVIVO and try to make game that we and many people realy like to play.
OVIVO is 2D puzzle-platformer. Game world is divided on black and white spaces. Each of them have the different gravity direction (on white area is directed downward like in real world, on black - upward). Character moves from the left to the right. He has an ability to transit from one color zone to another, by this way Character penetrate through environment’s contours and overcome obstacles. Player’s goal is to beat the game, by solving game puzzles, based on duality of the game world and to find a symbol on every level that opens next part of the story. To solve most of the puzzles, players must change their vision of the game and turn it upside down. OVIVO world is always evolving and developing. Leve’ls look become more natural. Flora and fauna appear. The levels go from simple to very complicated.Due to these visual images we tell the story of a world without words and dialogs. The Game is available on Steam! http://store.steampowered.com/app/597700/OVIVO/
