Menguri Village Level Design
The Menguri Village is a confined level where the player must uncover the truth behind why this once prosperous village, is now a frozen ghost town. The level features traps, puzzles, quests, and a shop that the player has to use and overcome to uncover what here.
The level design tries to focus on environmental storytelling, with item descriptions, scattered notes, and past events being prevalent in the level. There are also some rudimentary combat mechanics and a quest system to help guide the player around the level.
As the player slowly pieces together what happened in the village the atmosphere of the level starts to turn foreboding and tense as they finally make their way to the keep on the lake where the lord of the land had confined themselves.
I've also included the design documents for the level below if you'd care to have a look.
