Cash Panic Heroes

Current project - In progress - Started August 2017

Cash Panic Heroes is a money matching puzzle combat game.

My first time using Unity and my first time learning C#.

Match coins into higher denominations to clear the board and gain money to buy upgrades and special items mid-game. Matching colored energy coins gives you energy to use your heroes unique abilities. 

Selecting different heroes gives you access to new abilities to use in a round, while the items in the shop remain the same for every hero. The first hero to knock out the other wins!

All artwork is temporary while I work the gameplay out. That's totally not Alucard from SotN.


War of Nations

Designer from December 2016 - May 2017

War of Nations, similar to Kingdoms of Camelot, is a MMO mid-core strategy game. When RockYou (ex employer) purchased War of Nations from GREE. I was the sole game designer in charge of all design knowledge transfer from the GREE team to us, and then later on from us to our India team. I managed all design work for WoN and was in charge of training two new designers, creating new expansions/content/units, and approving all new content from India.


Kingdoms of Camelot

Designer from September 2015 - March 2017

A mid-core MMO facebook game. I started at Rock You as a Monetization Manager. When the previous designer moved onto another game within Rock You, I took over all Design responsibilities which included designing new features, new in-game items / troops / equipment, and was included in all leadership and sprint planning meetings. I oversaw training two new designers when we transitioned Kingdoms of Camelot to another India studio.

During my time as the lead designer of KoC I instituted several large changes to the game in addition to the standard content and new unit creation. One major change was to regularly speak to our players in our forums and hold regular conversation and discussion. Here I would start bi-weekly forum threads discussing upcoming features, and ask players what things we should focus on. This change (among many others) lead to many players hailing me as "the savior of KoC". Another change was the implementation of a combat balance change to many troops/units, which was the first time this had been done in the 7 year history of KoC. This change was well received and generated almost an entire months worth of revenue at a time when we were running short on new content after company lay offs. 


Run or Die

Level Designer from July 2014 - December 2014

I created every challenge level, designed new level chunks for the endless mode, and did testing for Run or Die.

This simple college game was part of a course to teach scripting in javascript. The goal was just to make a "toy" game to mess around with, not a game with goals or win conditions.
