The Ciphered Letter is a mockup of a video game introduction designed in Maya and developed in Unity. Play as Tom, husband and homeowner, as he explores his mountain-side cabin and discovers that his wife is missing, with only a suspicious letter left behind to explain her disappearance.
Here’s the first (and so far, only) video game level I designed. I made this for a class in Uni and only just rediscovered it on one of my hard drives.
I modeled everything in Maya, then recorded this bit of game play in Unity. It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out the coding to make that note pop up.
Hehe you may notice that the main character is Tom Hanks, and he’s looking for his wife Rita
(please ignore me falling off of the cliff like 12 times – also sorry for the motion sickness-inducing filming)
Here’s a super super rough sketch of the level design:
Can you figure out the puzzle in the note?
