Curriculum Vitae was developed for my stepfathers 60th birthday where he gets to go back 30 years and see how his life could have turned out if he had chosen differently.
This idea was derived from the storytelling concept created for The Narrator, a game developed at Global Gam Jam 2014.
We removed the mechanic of going backwards in time and instead told the story in a linear way: the story of Werner who at his 60th birthday was given the chance to look back at the choices he made in his life and explore the different career choices that might have opened up to him if he had chosen differently.
