About

A virtual experience providing young people with a brief escape from their stressful life in a relaxing and unique way.

Forest of Serenity is an immersive digital project that combines enchanted visual, satisfying interactive experience, music and poems which allows players to relax and escape from their stressful life. This stems from our observation that university students face a lot of pressure and stress in their daily life. Sometimes these pressure are not that big but it is the anxiety in their head that leads them to unhealthy mental state. That leads to a question of how digital environment and sound design can help to visualize messages from nature

GAME TEASER

FLOWCHAT



EXPLORING EACH SIGHT

BE CURIOUS

Looking for laughter
Among the tall grass field, gently
-rustling with the wind

The model is covered by nature elements : grass, flower, mushroom. Those elements carry different music notes that will later become a complete melody. Player can click on a mushroom/flower that music notes will come off.
HAPPINESS IS EVERYWHERE

Up high in the sky
Where the flower blooms and shines
As a day goes by

Player will goes up to a higher place as where the model is placed. After interacting with the model, music will be played as flowers bloom.
DON’T TRY TO CONTROL EVERYTHING

Too much things to hold
Inhale, exhale, and release
Light as a feather

The model shows there are objects being attached and trapped by a string. Player can free them just by clicking and make the string become loose so objects can be liberated.
BALANCE

Four stones stacking up
One falls off, two follow
Stack again, a tower forms

Player need to stack the stone in order so they won’t fall. When the stacking is completed (everything is balanced),flowers will bloom from the stones.
