PROJECT LENGTH: 8 months
EMPLOYER: GEL Lab, MSUFCU
Your baby dragon has gone missing in this magical children's adventure game! Targeted at kids ages 5-10, children will increase their cognition and understanding of basic financial concepts as they engage in an epic quest to save Draggy.
The game was developed by the Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab (GEL) at Michigan State University and supported by the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.
Variety of Educational Games
A series of 8 mini-games will assist children in learning financially-related goals, including counting and understanding the value of saving money.
Players have access to 23 areas with 13 unique characters, each with animations and voice acting.
As the character artist for the project, I created concepts and finished vector art for the various people and creatures throughout the game. I aimed to include diverse ages, ethnicities, and genders to help depict a more inclusive world for players to experience.
