NEOPETS ISLAND BUILDERS
Game Design Lead
Neopets: Island Builders is a 3D construction simulation game where players have to rebuild the island nation of Dacardia. The game originally released in 2022, I had the opportunity to work with the team on the re-imagined version that's currently in development. My role involved leading the design team in establishing the game's vision and roadmap. I worked collaboratively with other team leads to meet deliverables, managing design sprint planning and delegating tasks. Kept stakeholders and product managers updated on design team progress and team challenges. Led design huddles, brainstorming and held design reviews.
The mobile game is currently in Closed Beta.
