As it Is

Writer | Narrative Designer

Dec. 2017 - Present 

A watercolor, storybook-like 2D narrative adventure game about the lives of two characters: socially anxious Hedgehog and disillusioned former champion flyer Hawk.

As Writer, I wrote every line of dialogue and item description in the game's current demo. I also worked with my team to create the world and characters.

As Narrative Designer, I designed the game's two main narrative minigames with my team, making sure they elicited our intended experience while staying in-character.

Additionally, my responsibilities included:

  • Using Unity to create/ test prototypes.

  • Writing all drafts, edits, & final cuts for all writing present in the game.

  • Orchestrating all of the game's cutscenes.

  • Working with a team of nine to iterate on the game's main characters and NPCs, ensuring each had a distinctive voice.
