Emotional Colour Map

This is the emotional colour map for Germination X. It’s a 22 by 8 sized image, with 8 colours for each OCC emotion (those we haven’t done yet are white).

From left to right, these represent: LOVE, HATE, HOPE, FEAR, SATISFACTION, RELIEF, FEARS_CONFIRMED, DISAPPOINTMENT, JOY, DISTRESS, HAPPY_FOR, PITY, RESENTMENT, GLOATING, PRIDE, SHAME, GRATIFICATION, REMORSE, ADMIRATION, REPROACH, GRATITUDE, ANGER.

It’s primarily based on a set of colours Lina has been working on. She found it useful to group the emotions into positive and negative sets. Something I think is significant is that these colours were made with the colours of the plants and the general feel of the game in mind. I think the problems I found with this exercise was a lack of context – perhaps thinking too abstractly about this is a bad idea.

It’s great to see this work being picked up by the Life project by Evan Raskobb at Space Studios – looking forward to seeing more of where they go with this.
