Level Design – Without You

Tasked with creating a mission-based level, my design focused more on the story and cyclical progression of the player through the level to accomplish tasks and revisit certain parts of the area.  In that, the ‘U District’ is a close, compacted area filled with places for the player to visit and gain information, close enough that revisiting an area isn’t a burden on the players’ time.

The level was designed in Google Sketchup, as it was primarily a pre-concept for a storytelling vehicle, with the level design catering to the needs of the player in context of the story progression.
