Acheron is a side-scrolling adventure game that steps away from regular games in the genre. Instead
of controlling the main character, one player takes control of two orbs using a single controller to
guide the main character.
The main character, the nameless girl, is stuck in Acheron, a dark and different world, with abstract
similarities to our own. She is afraid and her only hope to escape are two guiding orbs of light, each
with their own abilities and possibilities. They will have to work together to get the girl to safety.
Best Student Game
With Acheron we want to deliver something that is not instantly perceived as a student project, but as an actual game. We make use of the latest technology, Unreal Engine 4, to create a game experience which makes art and design come together in one complete experience. Made in 14 days by a team of 12 second year students from the NHTV in Breda, we aim to bring a new twist to an already established genre by having to control two characters yourself at once. We are proud to present our game, Acheron, for submission!
