Allumette is very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Little Match Girl”. This short story was a literary tale of social justice, with Andersen highlighting the unjust plight of orphans across Europe in the 19th century. Allumette is intimate on an emotional scale – focusing on the love between a mother and her child as well as the sacrifices that people are willing to make for the greater good.
Simultaneously, we tried to push the boundaries in terms of scope and scale. To tell the story of Allumette, Penrose crafted an entirely new and fantastical VR world, with a city loosely inspired by Venice floating in the sky. Clouds lap the buildings like waves in the winding canals and rios of Allumette’s world. We see ourselves not only as storytellers but also as VR world builders.
