Great entries so far. Is someone still working on something?
Will be entring in a few minutes...
So here's my entry...I wanted to take a different take on the overview map than the other entries, so I decided on an actual map overview for the part of the story that would take place in the hotel...it still fits within the rules
Background-story: a young scientist is stuck at a conference in a tropical resort and has to find a way to spend his time in an absolute non-science related manner without his professor - whom he told he was sick - catching up on him. Yes, it's a total rip of Ferris Bueller's day off...so there's probably going to be a singing routine somewhere in the game...aloha doctor.
I decided to go for a hand-drawn on-a-budget cartoon look...so some of the roughness is intentional. Some of it is due to lack of time (yeah, sorry about that). Also, the goal of the lighting was to create a mood and focus on the map rather than an accurate representation of physics or logic (who in their right mind would make an exotic hotel-lobby this dark?)
In-game the red dot would point to the player's current location, and the plant would be substituted for different objects depending on where you are (jukebox, hand-dryer, etc). And if I had a little more time I would have finished this rough animation of the character (my apologies for the file-size, my usual software had a weird glitch):
