A Tale of Sand


A Tale of Sand ! (PC)

Game Designer / Lead Level Designer

8 Months Project

Team of 5 people


Players play as a sand ball which is trapped in a house and tries to escape from there. When the sand ball is in contact with specific elements or objects, it gets modified for a limited amount of time. All along the game, player has the abilities to change property of sand ball. For example, when the sand ball is in touch with wind, the grains are scattering which allow the sand ball to slide into air. Player also upgrades those abilities by collecting other grains of sand which are scattered all over the house.


The player controls the character made of Sand and acquires elemental power as it progresses in its journey.
