Lizard City, Game Not Included, 2020 (ongoing)

Responsibilities: Concepting, Game Design, 3D Modelling & Interface Design, Story, Typesetting/Formatting…

This is a Video Game Strategy Guide for a retro-style 3D platformer game that does not exist. Lizard City is my ongoing personal game design project and I develop all elements of its design from concepting to completion. All game screenshots, story and design elements are developed by me, with help from feedback and brainstorming sessions with friends who have to listen to me talk about it constantly.

ToteamHead, 2015

Responsibilities: Art Direction, Previsualization.

TotemHead was initially developed as pitch for Penn State’s Game Design Club in 2013, designed to be a 2.5D narrative-driven platformer. I provided the initial idea for the project as well as establishing core visual style choices. While the game was ultimately dropped, I continued to create conceptual designs for the game world, from game mechanics to character and environment models and illustrations.
