Your Destination Is. . . is an immersive point-and-click “personality trait” quiz where players have the opportunity to explore a futuristic transportation center/airport and have their choices ultimately determine which fictional land they should travel to. Players can converse with other characters and interact with various objects (like menus, travel brochures, etc.) in the center, with each action and response being an indicator for what would be the dominant personality trait of the player.
There are four fictional lands/outcomes that the player could potentially go to, with each land based off of a specific set of personality traits.
IDEATION & PROCESS
Conceptual references I used for this game included personality quizzes, Buzzfeed quizzes, the Harry Potter Sorting hat quiz, and 2D point-and-click PC adventure games. I wanted to take the static nature of quizzes and incorporate interactive elements that would make players completely engaged.
In order to design the personality quiz, I first had to come up with all the possible end results a player could reach. I designed four different worlds (or potential outcomes) each relating to various unique personality types.
Conversations with various characters were incorporated using Ink, a narrative scripting language that integrates with Unity. This enabled players to freely make decisions and have their decisions impact their end result/location.
To pair with the game, I designed a travel brochure detailing on the types of personalities and the the various fictional places you can visit in each of the four worlds.
