YUKI - Environmental Storytelling by Kako is a Game Maker’s Sketchbook 2021 Official Selection for Curiosities representing YUKI developed by Arvore Immersive Experiences and published by Arvore Immersive Experiences.
YUKI is a bullet hell in VR which brought the challenge of how to tell a story when a hundred bullets are being shot in your direction. Environmental storytelling was our answer, relying on overall changes of mood and important art assets that would reveal themselves in moments of less intensity to suggest the story. Our second level has a bigger story to tell, an environment that goes from beauty to visual decay and corruption. This particular piece shows how we worked this visual contrast when a player goes “under the water” whenever they duck to dodge the bullets.
Co-founded by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), creative production company iam8bit, and communications firm, fortyseven (47), the Game Maker’s Sketchbook is a juried exhibition with aims to highlight and celebrate all forms of art related to the craft of making games.
All proceeds from print sales go to support the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of the interactive arts.
The mission of the AIAS is to promote and advance the worldwide interactive entertainment community; recognize outstanding achievements in the interactive arts and sciences; and host an annual awards show, the D.I.C.E. Awards, to enhance awareness of the interactive art form. Other special programs led by the AIAS include the AIAS Foundation which has sponsored hundreds of scholars and mentees, hosted education summits (including Amplifying New Voices), launched the first game industry 5k race, and built a growing database of mentors ready to help the future generations of industry leaders.
