Role

After the success of the original Vision by Proxy, Team Giraffasaurus wanted the sequel to incorporate more narrative elements to motivate the player. I was brought on to create a minimalist story structure and build out the themes for the game. We decided to focus on the death of the main character's father and how she tries to keep his memory alive. I scripted the opening cinematic and helped design the sequence that collectible items will be encountered.

Additionally, I used the team's proprietary editor to design and tweak several levels, one of which ended up in the final product.
