The Will of the Wisp

Follow the journey of a little wisp on her rite of passage to the afterlife as she overcomes obstacles in a world of lost souls, dangerous monsters, and friends in the weirdest of places to reclaim her memories.

The Will of the Wisp is a 3D, narrative-heavy, puzzle game where you play as Whisper, the lost soul of a girl who is missing her memories, wandering through a world of spirits, monsters and reapers in order to rediscover her identity. The game is being built using the Unreal Engine, Maya, Blender, and other tools.

Work in progress snippets

Inside a forest, fog winds its way through twisted trees, billowing mist extending up into the canopy. The forest, usually pitch black at any time of the night, glows a ghostly blue. Suddenly, a blue light radiates from the top of a hill before quickly fading out.

Screenplay excerpt

WHISPER is near the treehouse, asleep and curled up into a fetal position. WHISPER slowly starts to awaken, sitting upright as she yawns. WHISPER rubs her eyes before she slowly opens them. She blinks profusely, as she doesn’t recognise her surroundings, and after a few moments jolts upwards. WHISPER freezes for a few seconds before moving around to observe her surroundings.
