In celebration of 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table, the European Chemical Society commissioned myself, Sandy Russell and Scott D’Arcy (working as Offensive Magenta Games) to produce a video game, aimed at eleven year-olds, which would introduce the concepts of basic chemical elements and compounds. We were commissioned in July of 2018, and the game launched on January 21st, 2019, so it was a relatively short amount of time to produce the game. I acted as project manager on the project, liaising frequently with the other team members, and EuChemS, ensuring efficient incorporation of feedback,and streamlining of processes where possible. In addition to this I produced the score and audio design for the game, using FMOD middleware to create the audio logic, and scripting the integration in C# (the game was created in Unity). I was also tasked with designing the narrative and writing the dialogue for the game. It was an excellent opportunity to do some in-depth work with FMOD, and I now feel very confident in my abilities with the software, and am really pretty pleased with the work I produced for this project!
