About Uri: The Sprout of Lotus Creek

Uri is a puzzle adventure game that uses in-game UI to solve puzzles. Translating a health bar into a platform to walk on, using the pause button to freeze object in place, or turning a music note (the mute button) into a spring to jump on. The possibilities of UI usage is explored throughout Uri’s journey as the young prince set foot beyond the palace for the first time. The game is designed for the mobile platform.

What makes my game unique?

Elegance in gaming with innovative game mechanics and storytelling technique. The game mechanics feature a multi-purpose in-game UI where the UI you use (for pausing, muting, etc.) also serves as a tool to overcome puzzles and obstacles. To pair with the game mechanics is a unique take in storytelling technique where no text or dialogue was used, focusing only on the stunning visuals and atmospheric soundtracks to tell the story. Together, what Uri presents is an elegant gaming experience.

Why could my game win an award?

Uri is built with one goal in mind—a beautiful gaming experience. With an engaging story, charming visuals, and lively soundtracks, it is a game crafted with care so players can enjoy the elegance of the gaming media. The game is built to be more than a game, it is built to be an experience.
