Overview


        Althea is a VR cooperative, puzzle-solving game that can be played by 2 players. They will role play as two asymmetrical characters, a fairy who can use magic to draw glyph and purify poisonous puddles, and a dryad who can throw rocks and activate trigger plates. The players' major goal is to make their way towards the guardian tree of the forest.By focusing on communication and cooperation, our game brings two guests emotionally closer as they explore our visually astonishing world. Throughout our game-play, we strengthen this theme by providing several puzzles that requires both guests to interact with. In the end, as the guests complete the journey, they are able to gain a sense of peace.  This game has made into CMU ETC Festival 2017, a showcase of student work from the Building Virtual Worlds course, semester-long projects, and student films.
