The Day I met LAIA
A downloadable game for Android
Find your way through a distressed spaceship in this audio-only adventure game
Play as UGO, a small maintenance robot awaken in a distressed spaceship
by its Commandant locked away in the flight deck.
You are lost in the Koriavov, a drifting settlers-ship
headed for a new exoplanet, with no ways to send a distress call.
Explore the almost abandoned ship, and find a way to
call for help.
- The game doesn’t rely on graphics to tell its story, describe the environment or present challenge to the player.
- Binaural Sound spatialisation
Alternative use of VR
- It serves the purpose of a blindfold to immerge you even more in the audio-only universe of the game
The day I met LAIA is a 3 months long project, made between March and June 2017 at CNAM-ENJMIN (France). We are a team of 6 people on 5 different specialities : producing, game design, programming, sound design and ux/ui design. Our goal was to make a short audio-only experience where you are able to live a story, solve puzzles and enjoy the environments. We want to experiment an unusual technology for our game: the Cardboard and the Gear VR. All of our sounds were made for a binaural experience, and you can listen to our trailer in 5.1. The project is presented on June 12th and 13th at CNAM-ENJMIN and on June 24th at Paris for the end of the Hits Playtime contest.

The game will be ported shortly on the 2017's Gear VR with the controller.
- STEREO HEADPHONES REQUIRED -
You will also need a pair of headphones (or ear buds) correctly placed on your head, to play, or the binaural won't work as expected.

The game takes a while to load, but you will hear the commander once it's launched.
