Space Garden is a 1.5 minute visual novel, rhythm game trailer created for 2021 #HypeJam.
The original pitch was about a rhythm game where the player act as a space gardener, traveling in a space ship equipped with a greenhouse, and captured an alien plant that need constant attention. As player interacted with the plant, they can gather fruits and seeds, which can be sold later to improve the spaceship, and even invest in the local community to improve its quality of life.
This alien plant, however, is very temperamental. If player does not take care of it properly, it may gone berserk and destroy the space ship.
For the game jam, I was responsible for creating the narrative, storyboard, background design and leading the team. I joined the jam since I knew nothing about making game trailer, and learned a lot from the rest of the team.
