Haiku Adventure: The Craft of Games
We are currently exhibiting the development work behind Haiku Adventure alongside some of the ukiyo-e masterpieces that have inspired the game. The exhibition is on at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, London and will run until 15 September 2019. We’d love to see you there!
The poetic story of an old soul’s journey across rich and varied landscapes, as they quest to stop a volcano that would destroy the natural environment they have come to hold so dear.
Haiku Adventure is an original adventure puzzle game with a distinctive visual style and magical realist narrative. The game is being crafted in celebration of the traditions of ukiyo-e woodblock prints and haiku poetry.
