For one of my courses I had to design a game based on a myth (the one I picked was the Gumiho one), so here’s some concept sketches for the game I designed. The sketches are of the Gumiho disguised as a gisaeng, and of the gumiho hunter that follows her trail.
Here’s the game premise:
” In Gumiho you assume the role of a Gumiho hunter, with a troubled past that connects you to the Gumiho you are chasing throughout the land. You must investigate gruesome crime scenes to discover leads that will lead you to the path of the Gumiho, as well as probe the villagers to discover if they’ve seen something. Could one of them be lying and covering up for the beautiful woman? Or was he bribed to keep quiet? You must pay attention to their answers and ask the right questions.
Sometimes certain leads will take you, the Gumiho Hunter, in the trail of other mythical creatures, like ghosts and the undead, letting the player experience different legends of the supernatural of Asian countries. You will be faced with tough decisions at times, where your choice will affect the course of the game. Will you answer brusquely to a noble? That might end you in jail. Are you out of money to bribe a citizen? Maybe you should squeeze the truth out of him, but what consequences will that bring?
And ultimately, when you find the gumiho, will you let the woman that was once your wife and that you loved go free, or will end her killing spree and take revenge for your family that she has slaughtered? The choice is yours. “
Would you play it :D?
