Side Scroller Game

I loved the game series 'Little Nightmares' and it was one of my inspirations when creating this game. I loved the idea of creating a game where the character is tiny trying to navigate around a world where everything is much larger. With my idea in mind, a side scroller/ platform game seemed to fit this theme very well and I believe it was best suited for my initial intention for this game. This also allowed me to focus on creating all the game assets I wanted to use. The character was originally intended to have a poncho, thimble which she used as a mask and a ponytail hairstyle, but there was some complications that arose when importing into Unreal so I decided not to add them.
