On a strange and distant planet a traveler crash lands and is greeted by a mysterious tree, which is the life force of the planet. The visitor must navigate the environment and tend to the emotions of the Mother Tree to find their way home.
Sky's Hollow is a Vertex School's student project, and I created the concept art for the Mother Tree. The one of main concepts of Sky's Hollow is the Mother Tree, which we drew inspiration from Yggdrasil in Norse mythology. The tree is the soul and energy of the planet and is connect to everything. Its feelings affect the environment, and its emotions are expressed through its changing leaves.
The Mother Tree is multi-dimensional, with access at the base of the tree. Originally it was a large stone at the roots of the tree, but we felt it would translate better to the player as a Portal.
