Drowning in Problems

A text adventure


This is a free, unauthorized, alternative version of "Drowning in Problems". The original game was made by Markus "Notch" Persson and is available here. This is the project for the final thesis of my master’s degree in Composition for Applied Music from Conservatorio Santa Cecilia, Rome. My goal was to add music and sound effects to this simple and inspired game, hence improving the gamer's experience without (hopefully) ruining the essential beauty of the original version.


The game was made using Unity together with Wwise. Watch the video below for a better understanding of the interactive music structure achieved using Wwise.


I do not own any of the rights to the game itself, which are the property of Markus "Notch" Persson.


The app is downloadable for free, both for Windows and OSX.
