The Whistful Woods

“The Whistful Woods” is a hypothetical fantasy farming sim and adventure game, centered in a haunted forest. In theory, the player would socialize with the local cast of characters while developing a small rural community and gathering items for farming, crafting and cooking. Befriending characters and completing tasks would unveil a number of small, interwoven secrets to reveal more about the history of each individual character and their world. As my thesis project, I have compiled preliminary conceptual development for the game’s settings and three Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) that the player would interact with.
