There are a total of six dungeons in this game.
High school level was inspired by Japanese high school found in anime and manga. I was given free reign to design all the asset for this level, which was really fun.
Hospital level was assigned to another environment artist. I was brought later on to do some asset modification, such as modifying material, optimizing the models, and creating new assets for set dressing.
Shopping mall was the first level created for the game’s Kickstarter demo. It was a collaboration between several different environment artists. In the beginning, I was involved in making small and medium props. Later on, I was brought back in to do some modification and creating new set dressing assets.
This level was a collaboration of several environment artist. I got my inspiration from other horror games such as Resident Evil, while still maintaining modern look.
The sewer might be dark and bleak, but it was my job to brighten the place and added additional props to show that hope is somewhere on the horizon.
Just like the hospital and sewer levels, they were assigned to other environment artists, and I was brought in later on to modify the assets and create new set dressing.
