For my final Year college project I created an interactive video game, called 'Brigid and the Secrets of Tír na nÓg'.
The project was a very enjoyable experience, as I focused on translating my 2d illustrations into fully realised 3D assets. I spent a lot of time researching Irish mythology for the project, and decided the game would focus on Brigid.
Brigid belonged to the Tuatha Dé Danann, a tribe who sailed to Ireland thousands of years ago. Eventually, they left Ireland to create Tír na nÓg. In my interpretation of the myth, Brigid's mother moves to Scotland, where she dies soon after Brigid's birth. When Brigid grows up, she begins to wonder where she came from and travels to Ireland, to find Pádraig, a powerful druid-like character who lives in the Tuatha Dé Danann's abandoned city.
The game level I created shows the last stage of this journey as she emerges from a forest, into Padraig's magic infused world.
