About the Story
"1915 is a powerful little experience that would make a great companion piece to Peter Jackson’s They Shall Not Grow Old" - Alpha Beta Gamer
1915 is a short World War One narrative-driven experience that puts the player in the role of a spectral observer to the Battle of Loos of 1915.
With the ability to time travel in this interactive museum of World War I trenches, the player encounters the authentic memoirs of soldiers and uncovers the unique stories of the Battle from those who fought in it.
Time-Travel: Observe the clash in attitudes of the soldiers before and after the Battle of Loos by time jumping between two time periods of the same trench
Historically-Authentic Design: The visual design of this game was based off of historical research into the battle of Loos, including real quotes from soldiers who fought/died during the engagement
1915 began as my University Honours Project which discussed how the medium of games can be used to convey the harsh reality of warfare over the glorification that we're so used to seeing within mainstream war games. I believed that setting the game within a battle as tragic and needless as Loos, as part of war as tragic and needless as World War One was the most appropriate way of portraying an unglamorous representation of war.
