Thirst Design Document

Thirst Design Document

Published by Chris Walden
A design document about a game I created called Thirst, a survival horror game based around narrative branching and a story with a massive plot twist. This is the product of my FYP, written in my third year at university. It has mainly been uploaded for people to see via GradEx, but I'm certainly not opposed to making it public!

If you have any questions or wish to get in contact with me for any projects, email me on christopher.walden (at) hotmail.com. You can also visit my website at www.chriswalden.co.uk.

and
Resident Evil 
.
‘I Am Legend’ 
is also an influential piece.
