I Spy in the Dark


Remember those childhood times when we would read books under our bed covers with a flashlight?

I Spy in the Dark is a physical hidden object game that tries to capture that same feeling of childhood wonder. Inspired by the original ‘I Spy’ book series, this game prototype is played in the dark with a torch.

As the player reads a custom-designed storybook, they are prompted to find hidden objects within a paper diorama using their torch. The story is about a witch named Penelope Nightflower, who needs to collect five different animal sounds in the forest to complete her magical spell.

Created for the Make Things Interactive elective course as part of my Master in Animation, Games & Interactivity degree at RMIT University.
