Howl is a turn-based tactical folktale set in a world of living ink. Rid the lands of the beastly plague using your weapons and your wits, planning every move up to six steps in advance. Some think prophecy is carved in stone – write your own in ink and blood. I was a producer on this project.

PC – G4D Jam Utrecht, 2018
During the Games [4Diversity] Jam 2018, we were inspired by the theme Fuck First Impressions and by talking to Shivan Hassan, who shared how people react to his disease epidermolysis bullosa. We made a game where you create your own comic about awkward situations, to show how unpleasant prejudice can be. I contributed to vision & concept art.

Friendstrap was the first game I worked on at Game Oven: an ice breaker on your phone.

During the first Train Jam from Chicago to San Francisco, I tried pixel art for the first time. Inspired by the movie Gravity, 14 Seconds is about an astronaut finding his way back to his space ship. It plays like QWOP and was made together with Adriaan de Jongh & Mikayla Hutchinson, and the voice talent of Kris Graft.
