Overview

Sugar Slam is a game developed for Snapchat's new gaming platform and was the first project where I worked as the Lead Game Designer.

My role on the project involved leading the game's systems designs, economy design and balancing. I also covered the Product Manager role and managed the entire team, ensuring all developers were working towards the same goal and provided the client and executive team with regular updates.
