#Awkward

Mobile Web Game

Global Game Jam 2015 Hawaii 1st Place Winner. Our game, “Hashtag Awkward”, is Cards Against Humanity for awkward situations.

Designed and developed winning mobile web game in less than 48 hours with a fellow developer, testers, and a beloved project manager.

MY CONTRIBUTION

I developed wireframes (layout, game flow, interactivity) based on user stories, designed and illustrated the “Awkward Animals” (player avatar images) using Adobe Photoshop, and implemented the front end (HTML/CSS/JavaScript) of the game.
