Abstract

The Piper is a first-person interactive cinema experience based on the legend of the Pied Piper. Set in medieval Germany, the player assumes the role of a child being lured away from the village of Hamelin under the vengeful spell of the Piper’s music. Our team consisted of two programmers, two artists, and a music/audio producer. This report discusses the design goals of The Piper, the methods by which it was developed, technical and aesthetic challenges that the project faced, and the team’s reflections on the development process and final product.
