The well is a mystical item located at the center of the ash tree called Yggdrasil. The tree itself laying in the middle of the spiritual cosmos. Better known as the World Tree, this is a magical well of destiny that the player can access to travel between the realms.
I started off the design process by handling both the mood as well as the functionality at the same time. The focus from the get go was to capture the feeling of awe that the player would have when encountering the tree for the first time but not loose sight of a practical and user friendly design.
