ABOUT THE GAME
Hymble Ventures is a 2.5D sci-fantasy platform game about an insect-like alien on the autism spectrum. Join Hymble on their adventure through Hymborgia, Eukaterra, to find and discover a mysterious, wandering, maegent.
Full of environmental puzzles, metalhead creatures and special abilities based on autism hypersensitivities, converted into superpowers.
The core mechanics are based on controlling the five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hear). For neurodiverse people, they can be hypersensitive to sensory information and may overreact to increasing stimuli. This autism trait is an inspiration to aspects of Hymble’s world such as quirky, organ-shaped berries that grant enhanced sight, or smell etc.
To hone in on the subject of autism and hypersensitivities, Hymble’s cartoonish and exaggerated character design consists of oversized melon bread antennae (or ears), and a large nose.
