Quazar Online (Web) 2016 Unity3D

Lead Programmer, Lead Gameplay Designer Publisher: Build Character Build Success Languages: C#

This project consists of a series of 2D mini-games. It was built in Unity3D specifically for use in classroom computer time. The design is optimized for 15 minute occasional play sessions as is the norm for most students. It was originally built for mobile use, but migrated to web due to limited access to mobile devices at some schools. The target browser was IE 8, due to school security constraints. The game was brought into schools on multiple occasions for playtesting. The victory cheer at the end of each level is a layered recording of the cheers of actual winners in the Build Character Build Success program. The first of eight mini-games has been released.

Yours Truly: Mist (Web) & Heart of God (Web) 2013 – Flash

Co-Team Lead, Lead Level Designer Publisher: Team WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot Languages: ActionScript

Our team was quite large, so we decided to divide it among three projects. Using edited stills of my level design from the main game, the Flash teams developed two more games. The first was a take on Myst, allowing the player to explore by clicking their way through a series of images. The second was an interactive novel, giving the player a series of choices, leading to a variety of endings.

Programmer, Co-Lead Gameplay Designer Publisher: Team WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot Languages: ActionScript

Completed as part of Great Canadian Appathon 3, Operation: Downsize was built in the style of a strategic boardgame like chess. The premise is that half of an office is going to be downsized, but the corporate office can't decide who should go. Two players use the same device in a fight to decide which team will be downsized. I was interviewed by, and the game was featured on EP Daily!
