An explanation regarding the letter of the game- a love letter

Posted by on


Hi everyone, it's time for another devlog!

On this week's devlog we are going to give you an in-depth explanation about the letter in the game!

Let's start!

Letter - Lore

First of all, as most of you know (if you've read any of your past devlogs), the letter will be related to the entire gameplay and the main mechanic is related to writing it!

This letter is an adaptation of what Armando wrote to his beloved one somewhere in the '50s. This letter was written due to Armando being far away from her, and, due to the melancholy he felt, he decided to write her a letter explaining his feelings.

Letter - Content

As for its content, the letter will be a love letter relaying Armando's feelings and his thoughts at the time. From memories of them together to declarations of love, the letter will be impactful and an important way to communicate with the player.

Letter - Concepts

In order to represent an old yet readable look to the letter, in collaboration with Barabara Nixon, here's the font the letter will use:

The letter will be written on top of a background resembling an old notebook, in order to emphasize the aesthetic we wanted to achieve!
