The Real Neverending Story
The Real Neverending Story was meant to become a milestone among 3D Adventure Games.
Unfortunately, the management confused the title with the development process and so the project was never finished.
The company known as Discreet Monsters and later on as 3DD went into bankruptcy in 2001 and the
efforts of my colleagues and me went down the drain. Click the images to view them in full size.

Outdoor Maps made with the company's proprietary editor.
The main work here was writing a game concept,
consisting of various interwoven fetch-and-deliver quests, which connected the important
locations on the map and made traveling through this outdoor maze an interesting adventure.
The map‘s layout is a hollow torus.
The tips of the tetrahedrons jut into the
inside like grown crystal formations.
