2012 is here and it is time to begin the year with a Winter Challenge of 2012: Storytelling Level Design Challenge Part 2!
What is Storytelling Level Design Challenge?
Below is a simple description of an open-ended story. Read the story and whatever comes to mind, whichever images appear in your imagination you are to create the visuals. Tell a story in the environment you create through Level Design.
Create the visuals based on the story below. Key to Storytelling Level Design Challenge is to tell a story with your environment that you create.
"Fire takes what it wants and what it wants is usually what we hold most dear. But a little is always left behind - a new start."
