Gameography 🎮

Tales of Dacardia

DESCRIPTION: 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.

Simulation, Exploration

DESCRIPTION: Path of Kami: Journey Begins was Captilight's Debut game where players can play as a spirit of a wolf on a journey to ascend to the spirit world. I founded Captilight in 2019 and acted as the Creative Director on the project. My role involved leading a team of (5-10) members through all phases of production on the project which spanned 10 language markets worldwide.  I specifically worked on defining the project schedules, budget, scope, and planning while directing the overall game vision. I also acted as Head of Marketing, creating marketing plans and executing them. I ran standups, sprint planning, design meetings, reviews, and other meetings. I also worked with localization partners to ensure quality translations and facilitate processes and implementation. I was also in charge of hiring and onboarding team members while continuously iterating on team onboarding processes.

DESCRIPTION: Neopets: Faerie's Hope is a match-3 mobile game where players can match tiles in the form of Petpet's while collecting wocky jellies to unlock story content to rebuild Faerieland in the sky! I had the pleasure of leading a team of 5 people from the Jumpstart Games team to work in collaboration with our parent company's devoplement team. My role involved leading the team to tackle deliverables and any needs the development team needed along with consulting on the IP and ensuring IP accuracy.
