SCAD GDN | Nadleeh

Event: SCAD Student Game Challenge
Role: Programmer/2D artist

The student-managed Game Development Network organizes a quarterly game design challenge, based on randomized prompts. I took the habit of submitting an entry at least once a year, to motivate students to participate. For this particular iteration, the prompts were:

  • Cultural aesthetic: Native American
  • Fictional genre: Low Fantasy
  • Game genre: Stealth
  • Music genre: Orchestral

I gave myself 48 hours to come up with a game concept made with Unity (in order to promote my 2D game design class). The “Stealth” component of the prompt was that the game was a light-touch social commentary on our current gender politics, through the prism of the prominent role of Nadleehs in the Navarro society.
