Hiveswap (What Pumpkin Studios)

Title: Hiveswap
Developer: What Pumpkin Studios
Published: Sept. 2017 (Act 1; Steam, Humble PC/Mac)

Primary roles: Writer, Game Designer
Additional role: Creative Director (3D prototype)

Based on the hit webcomic Homestuck, Hiveswap is a hand-drawn tribute to hilarious '90s adventure games (with none of the accompanying frustration). Play as Joey Claire, a puzzle-solving teen snatched out of her time (1994) and place (Earth) and stranded on a hostile alien planet on the brink of rebellion.



Hiveswap 3D prototype

Prior to the realization of the final game in 2D, Hiveswap was conceived as a fully 3D game using the Unity engine. In addition to overseeing game design and writing, I served as studio creative director during this phase of the project.

Below are screenshots and the teaser trailer video from this previous iteration of the game.
