Description

Lily, a flower game about childhood trauma.

History

Developer Charlotte Madelon announces Lily, a mobile entertainment game that uses the anatomy of a flower to explore childhood trauma. The game will release on iOS and Android in the summer of 2017.

Info

Lily suffers from an unfamiliar disease. The player interacts with Lily as a flower, unfolding leafs or moving bodyparts. The more traumas Lily gets, the more insects start appearing. Each creature represents an illness a child could get later in life when exposed to trauma. The goal is to find and collect all creatures to learn about Lily's obscure sickness.

About Lily

Based upon Charlotte Madelon's own experiences and the Adverse Childhood Experience Study, Lily is not a serious game but a socially engaged entertainment game to create awareness about this public health problem.

Charlotte Madelon

Charlotte Madelon is a self-taught game developer. Graduated cum laude in 2016 from the Utrecht School of Arts, she now focuses full-time on the production of Lily, modeling, designing and programming the entire game. With a curiosity for psychology, health and art, her aim is to create meaningful and entertaining games.

Stijn Frishert

Software developer and composer Stijn Frishert, who graduated from the Utrecht Academy of the Arts with a Bachelor of Music, would like non-linear soundtracks to become the standard in video games. Although the industry is definitely interested in more than just looping some audio files, the knowledge and tools necessary for implementing more dynamic soundtracks often remain a show-stopper. With Dsperados, a programmers collective, Frishert's work includes developing composition software that gives traditional composers accessible tools to create non-linear music for games.
