PROJECT: FORGOTTEN

An illustrated concept for an action-adventure game

My senior thesis focuses on exploring an overwhelming feeling of isolation. I wanted to create the experience of a tiny hero traveling through a massive world hoping to capture that emotion of awe.

In the year 2200, human were nearly extinct due to the war waged between the colonists of Mars and earth. Both worlds were rendered inhabitable after the Great War. Millions were stored underground in a megastructure near earth's core during the war. Those frozen ones managed to survive the war, and their sanity were secured via a neural connected system code name Heaven Project; everyone is connected with each other living in a community of eternal dreams. Because the condition of the earth's surface never really recovered, they remained underground, powered by geothermal technology, for millenniums.

Another group of human set off to explore worlds light years away as another method to prolong the evolutionary process. Floating in space for millenniums, one exploration team finally reached planet named, Terra, 1,200 light years away. The alien species on the planet welcomed the our human brothers at first, but conflicts could never be avoided when territories were involved...even for aliens. Human's superior technology and ambitious nature brought temporary peace but destroyed the last chance for peace.

Scientists on planet Terra were finally able to set up communication with Earth upon arrival only to find out Earth was destroyed millenniums ago. The discovery of their Heaven Project, however, inspire them to complete the warp station, so they could connect earth with the new world. Due to a great deal of time passed, people hooked in the Heaven Project were extremely unstable due to the reason that most survivors believed they had either lived for millions of years or countless life cycles. They weren't able to make useful contacts. The Terraen had a special link with dimensions beyond our understanding. Their fallen brothers came back in ghost forms and killing off human one after another. Before the last human base were invaded, the scientists elected the more stable subjects from Heaven Project and decided to have their personality implanted with the natives. Using extremely sophisticated Heaven Project subjects, the scientists hope to yield the Terraen special power against themselves. The experiment failed because the subject could not sustain the trauma upon contemplating having lived numerous lives. One specimen managed to control such psychological disorder and took on the mission to save both species, to save the world. What will he see on his journey through the bizarre world? Will he restore balance and bring about peace for both species?
