Mythic Journeys was a multi-media three class project I undertook in the Spring of 2008. I wrote a four part “dreamscape” adventure story over the course of my Advanced Nature Writing class, made it into a game (a self portrait as my own personal myth, hence Kurtis Trent and not Lara), then made a book out of it with the story and screenshots for my Constructed Realities class.
I made the game incredibly easy so that teachers and students could play it, so even though the four-level game is totally finished, it needs a lot of work to become difficult and expansive enough to challenge the die-hard TR fans. This series will hopefully be finished in Winter 08, expect a trailer in the fall. =)
In this game I have worked really hard on not only the aesthetics but also the gameplay. Some puzzles were taken from older games, while others I planned out before creating the levels. Again though, at the moment it is all too easy and linear.
Lara will be going on this journey in the fall, not Kurtis.
