"Adulting" is a interactive visual novel tackling the topic of the perception of being and becoming an adult in society as well as the question of what triggers this feeling of being an adult and whether there is a point at which
one actually feels completely like an adult. In doing so, we not only want to shed light on the process that a teenager goes through to become a young adult, but also look at older groups of people. The goal is to embed the feeling of insecurity that accompanies the term »being an adult« in the form of a visual, interactive story and to enable the recipients to deal with this topic individually but also socially. It will be released in May 2023.
"Adulting" is more a experience than game focusing heavily on storytelling and mini games which evoke a specific emotion. All those tiny interactions should focus on different problematic aspects of our three characters who should represent differt age groups who are struggling with different aspects of being an adult. It is a third person side scroller and a single player.
Additionally to clickalbe storytelling interactions the player can also write messages and send them to other players to share how they feel with this topic and get comfort in other people talking about it. The project is created with Unreal Enginge and Blueprinting systems as well as Wwise for Audio.
