Producer | Narrative Lead
April 2019 - Present(Ongoing)
Ginkgo is a 3D first person atmospheric horror adventure with East Asian influences in which you solve puzzles with a magical needle. It has been chosen as a USC Games 2019 Advanced Games Project, and is currently being developed for PC with Unreal Engine.
As Producer, I assign weekly tasks to a team of 23 people, using task assignment software(Trello and Hacknplan) and custom-created Excel burndown charts to make sure we hit longterm goals and important project milestones, preparing us to create a polished 15-20 minute demo to show at USC Games Expo 2019.
As Narrative Lead, I work with our Design team and Creative Director to craft a world and cohesive story that uses the game's mechanics and aesthetics to its advantage. I manage and update our Lore Bible, and write all in-game dialogue and descriptions.
Additionally, my responsibilities include:
Personally handling the task assignment and general management of six departments.
Working with seven leads in weekly meetings to calculate project trajectory and set project goals.
Creating and updating custom burndown charts.
Managing art and audio asset lists/pipelines via Gantt charts.
Planning team outings and maintaining good culture/motivation.
