The day I met LAIA

LAIA

Audio-only narrative adventure game, Mobile (Android)
A student project made during 4 months


Game & Narrative Designer

  • Original Idea
  • Design main features (cowork)
  • Design simple puzzles (cowork)
  • Dialogs writing
  • Lore & Characters design
  • Narrative systems design
  • Voice casting and voice direction during recordings (French & English)

As the original author of the project, I came with this strong idea of an audio-only game, inspiring by audio and radio fictions. During the 4 months of the project, I bring a whole sci-fi background to the project and its main character. I was responsible for the dialogs and audio logs (more than 100 replies and translated in French and English), the universe and the scenario. As a student project running for the Hits Playtime contest, we needed a strong communication about our game. I help in this communication campaign with the teaser and trailer, ideas to communicate on an imageless-game, etc.

You can find a record of a full session of the game (about 36 minutes) here in binaural 🎧.
Most of the game sessions last 45 minutes to 1 hour. As we were the one recording this walkthrough, we’re faster than a regular player.

About the game

Play as UGO, a small maintenance robot awaken in a distressed spaceship by its Commandant locked away in the flight deck. You are lost in the Koriavov, a drifting settlers-ship headed for a new exoplanet, with no way to send a distress call. Explore the almost abandoned ship, and find a way to call for help.

The day I met LAIA is a short audio-only experience where you are able to live a story, solve puzzles and enjoy the environments. We want to experiment an unusual technology for our game: the Cardboard and the Gear VR. All of our sounds were made for a binaural experience, and you can listen to our trailer in 5.1. The project is presented on June 12th and 13th at CNAM-ENJMIN and on June 24th in Paris for the end of the Hits Playtime contest.
