Co-Creator | Producer

Dec. 2018 - June 2019

Elementary is a turn-based RPG developed for PC about elementary schoolers using the power of music via rhythm combat to save their classmates from turning into tuneless, offbeat zombies.


As Co-Creator and Producer, I worked closely with my fellow creator, a composer, and two QA testers to develop a fully functional 15-minute demo over the course of 7 months. My specific responsibilities included creating and maintaining a burndown chart, as well as writing and implementing the full narrative(including coding a custom dialogue system) . 


Additionally, my responsibilities included:

  • Setting goals and assigning tasks to a 2-man team via a burndown chart in Excel.

  • Adjusting scope with my Co-Creator to account for milestones, bugs, and setbacks while maintaining our creative vision.

  • Creative problem-solving to work around scoping issues.

  • Writing a fully functional dialogue and events system, as well as the writing displayed.

  • Creating spritesheets, backgrounds, and combat UI assets.

  • Collaboratively designing and iterating on the combat system with my Co-Creator.
