Game Design Document, Prototype and Concept Art

New Beginnings: Pocket Shelter is an animal shelter simulation game that is best suited as a mobile application game due to its simple mechanics and repetitive nature.

New Beginnings is a casual role-playing game that requires users to employ time management skills in order to gain in-game currency to upgrade and expand the shelter.
The narrative of the game involves the player becoming the new owner of a small animal shelter after inheriting it from their late grandmother. The aim of the game is to re-home as many rescue animals as possible in the memory of the grandmother.
The game subtly enforces the “Adopt, don’t shop” philosophy and
enforces themes of love, compassion and mourning.
