Skipping Stones is a generative music and poetry game where players throw stones onto a lake and listen as each skip plays back a musical note. As you play, the soundscape changes with the time of day, and poetry reveals itself laying out a non-linear narrative about loss and struggle in the face of tragedy.
While working on Skipping Stones we always had the inspiration of making the game feel like a low-poly version of nature paintings that we loved, and to make that happen, we've done away with any lighting for a flat-shaded look reminiscent of Wind Waker crossed with Lawren Harris paintings.
