Studio: Octopus 8 Studios
Engine: Clickteam Fusion
Development Time: 3 Months
Team Size: 4 People
Through these 3 months, I worked as Junior Designer and Programmer for the first time alongside a team, prototyping, developing and eventually creating the
game through ClickTeam Fusion - a visual programming language used to create 2D games that we were all familiar with.
Despite this project not being as technically or visually impressive as the rest of my work, it taught me to value the importance of attention-to-detail particularly in
smaller teams, focusing on direct and clear game loops to create an enjoyable polished experience rather than bloated and long products.
When not working in-engine to implement the games many mechanics and narrative, I was collaborating with my Lead Designer to construct an interconnected Metroidvanian world through
multi-dimensional puzzle design; iterating through both physical and digital prototypes to perfect the flow of the game.
