Honeydew View is a visual novel about the complicated relationship between LGBT youth and their bodies/the world around them, told through the narratives of humans and some supernatural beings in high school.
As Lead Writer on this project, I wrote over 20,000 words of branching dialogue and designed a cast of characters with unique personalities and identities, pulling from my own experiences to craft authentic backgrounds.
Additionally, my responsibilities included:
Creating and iterating on a narrative and cast of characters, adapting both to the game's scope throughout development.
Participating in weekly meetings to discuss progress and narrative design.
Testing weekly builds for narrative feel, bugs, and UI design, reporting to engineering with feedback.
Using Unity Engine to prototype dialogue and test the game's narrative flow.
Demoed at Gameheads Student Expo 2018 and featured in Polygon.
