Hazel's Forest is a 2D platformer where player play as a flying squirrel who need to accomplish tasks to protect and thrive its village. 

In this prototype player's goal is to reach the end of a branch and to bring back a leaf as material of the studying of an disease, meanwhile try to collect as many acorns as possible as the food for overcoming the winter.

We came across three challenges during the production process,  simulating flying squirrel's movement while it's climbing a tree, studying flying squirrel's behavior and habitat, and creating assets in gouache.
