This is my adaption of "The Old man and the Sea". I created this game for a game design class.
The task was, to create any kind of game that is an adaption to the novel "The Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemingway.
I chose the theme of a trial, because in my interpretation the trial fits best of what will happen with the old man in the novel. He has to use all his strenght over exhausting hours to catch the marlin, just to lose it to the everlasting struggle of the ocean.
I was also inspired by the awesome oil painting animation "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5ih1IRIRxI" directed by Aleksandr Petrov. You can see this somehow in the chosen art style.
