The Idea behind Soar
Soar is a prototype game that I worked on in a team as a 2-week project. I was the lead level designer. I worked on layout while the other level designers worked on environment design.
In the game, you play as a water elemental bird who has a rival phoenix fire bird who is burning the land. The player's job is to use the water bird to put out those fires and restore peace.
Soar was a solo project idea that I had in my head for a few months but never got around to actually making it. The original scope of the game was that many different types of birds would fight back against humans that recklessly destroy the environment due to their use of fossil fuels and other forms of carbon footprints. However, for the scope of this project, the narrative was changed to be about two elemental birds fighting over the fate of the world.
