1.2. the town is based in the Melbourne area in Australia, the creek in the story is based on the Merri creek in this area.

1.3. the town in this story is large with a high population of people, developing this into an actual game may take a lot of effort so for the sake of simplicity and gaming experience I should work to a smaller scale environment for my piece.

1.4. the time period the story is set in is more modern, around the 2010's, when the book was written.

1.4.1. more specifically, this story takes place during the Christmas holiday, so colder temperatures and snow are possible in design
