Stepstone Island

Role: Project Lead, Gameplay Programmer
Software: Unity Game Engine | Language: C#
Date Developed: Spring 2017 - Spring 2018

Stepstone Island is a mobile game for Apple iPhone devices where players clean up and nurture their own virtual island through exercise. The app takes in real data from Appleā€™s Health app and converts it into in-game currency. This currency may be used to clean debris, plant trees, build landmarks, and interact with the game-world. The more beautiful and clean your island becomes, the higher the chance of characters visiting your island and supporting your hard work!

This game is my MFA in interactive media thesis project and was developed during my last year at USC. During its development I lead a six person team consisting of myself, an artist (Steven Sugar), sound designer (Tom Devereaux), music composer (Sarah Trevino), and two additional game designers (Michelle Olson & Sam Celeste).
