Comet Cruiser is an retro aesthetic arcade game inspired by classic games of the past and the feeling of playing games past your bedtime. It was a lot of fun creating this game. I created all of the art/ sound effects, and programmed the game using Unity.
Some standout features include addicting "one more time" gameplay, a store to unlock different ships using in-game points, and high scores.

Rave Boss is a game where you play as a low-level MMO boss who dreams of being a world-famous EDM DJ. Face waves of "players" and show everyone that you have more power than expected!
The other members of Juice Squad Games and myself created this game for the Seattle Indies 2019 Game Jam in Seattle. I was the only programmer and focused on developing mechanics and systems for the game. There is a lot of really cool features such as a chat-box to witness how much rage you are causing the "players." The music is also dynamic and impacts the visuals of the game. I had a lot of fun adding JUICE and GAME FEEL to this game!

WELCOME TO THE ISLAND
Welcome to the Island is a game I worked on for Global Game Jam 2019. I mainly worked on programming the dialogue system, UI, and the day/night cycle. I also created the music for the game.
The project was created using the Godot game engine with GDScript. This was a very collaborative project- I had a lot of fun working with my team and learned a lot about the importance of controlling the scope of a project and working with tight deadlines. It was also my first time using Godot and GDScript so it was a fun challenge to learn something new in a quick-paced situation. We acomplished a lot in 48 hours and I'm very proud of the team. Also this game has a cat that follows you around which is really cool.
Support System is an introspective puzzle platformer for one or two players.
Play as a character that can walk and jump in a desolate environment- but you aren't alone. A mysterious glowing ball can help you reach your destination. Toggle platforms on and off in order to complete the levels. This game relies on the player's ability to make a plan and execute it.
The other members of Juice Squad Games and I created this game for Global Game Jam 2020. I did all of the programming and designed a lot of the gameplay. I focused on building modular pieces that could be used to create many different gameplay moments. I had a lot of fun creating this game - it has a really powerful atmosphere and I'm incredibly happy with how everything came together.
Create-A-Game is a project I made in order to introduce young kids (1st Graders) to Game Development. A good friend of mine is a First Grade teacher and wanted to create a curriculum that would be highly educational, interactive, and most importantly- fun! I created a game in which players select what they want the game to have. Kids will be able to choose what kind of game they want to play. The goal is to allow young kids to realize that PEOPLE actually make video games and make decisions on art, sound, coding, and design.
I solo-developed and created all of the assets for this game. I created this game using Unity and it was a fun challenge to make a game where almost everything changes based on what players pick. I had a lot of fun making this game and it helped me with thinking of EVERYTHING as modular as possible.

Below is the educational video I made to go along with the game! :D
Meta Pet is a fun, silly self-aware pet game inspired by games of the past such as Tamagotchi. Name your pet and interact with it! Your pet will react and talk to you depending on how you choose to interact with it.
I solo-developed and created all of the assets for this game. This app was developed using Java, XML and data is recorded using an SQL Room Database. I had a lot of fun creating this game and I plan to eventually recreate the app in Unity in order to implement new concepts and ideas I have for the game.
