A Sci-fi City-Builder about the Systemic Failures of Refugee Aid
My Role: Creative Director, Art Lead, game writer
In Resilience, you assume the role of refugee camp manager on a distant moon and are tasked with the livelihood of an alien race fleeing planetary disaster. Confront the day-to-day struggles of camp life and the structural problems of an underfunded aid system.
Resilience was developed by our senior project team, Sungrazer Studio. Our goal was to raise awareness, foster empathy, and advocate for action surrounding refugee groups as well as the volunteers and aid workers on the front lines.
Resilience also won the Best Student Game award at the Games for Change 2020 Festival.

My Role: 2D concept / level designer
I worked at Big Moxi Games for my 6-month co-op back in 2019. One of my primary (and favorite) tasks was developing and iterating layouts for upcoming playable maps. I designed dozens of concepts for the woodland, arctic, and volcanic biomes that were then fully realized and built in 3D by other artists on the team.
