Hi!

I'm developing a game called Grapho :D

I’ve created this page to share the story of Grapho, a boy that fell into a world where words are the very essence of existence, the energy that keeps this world alive. On each level Grapho has to choose between doors. Some of them take him through the path of life, while others have catastrophic consequences and they lead him to places where words make no sense or to silence, where life is no longer…
Every door has a key to be found and these keys are words and sentences. At the end of each level the player has to put the words together in order to find the final key for the portal that will take him to the next level. The final keys will be quotes or entire texts from the universal literature.

Poetry has a special place in my heart so most of the texts will be poems.
As a solo developer, I'll share my creative and learning process through this adventure here on this page.

I'll be sharing both art and the technical aspect of the project, along with tutorials on 3D game environments, props art for game engines (I'm working with Unreal Engine 4) and much more.

I'm so thrilled to start this huge quest. As someone said... "I'm going on an adventure!!!”

Your kind support (see the tiers) both helps me realize my project and provides a unique dimension of motivation and user interaction / involvement. I hope you can help, even if only with some words of encouragement - every little helps.

The patron process does required a basic sign up. This helps me stay in touch with you along the way and also to understand where my lovely patrons are in the world. I beg your patience with it.
