Mythical Explorations through Character Design

Mythical Explorations through Character Design

Ilenia believes that myths can be a great source of inspiration for game design. In this project she investigates how ancient myths and deities are used in character design for video games. Ilenia seeks out the process of incorporating mythological narratives within games, while also considering the ethical implications and commercialisation of such themes. The study aims to uncover best practices and techniques for creating engaging characters while using their cultural origins as inspiration from these myths.
