HUNT: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown (PC)

Forming part of the core team that transitioned HUNT from Crytek Austin and re-booted the project into a unique high tension PvPvE experience. I worked closely with the creative director, studio manager and leads group to develop the title from concept to launch as well as continuous content updates of this early access title.

  • Produced and shipped an early vertical slice for E3 2017, publicizing the title at the show and generating hype for the game. Nominated for and winning several best of show awards.
  • Responsible for creating and maintaining level design direction for the title, breaking down requirements and ensuring the map development stayed on track.
  • Created rules and guidelines for level creation, playtesting and evaluation as well as developing the high tension/player awareness concepts core to HUNT: Showdown.
  • Worked closely with art and level design to ensure clearly readable and navigable multiplayer spaces.
  • Ran and managed playtesting and feedback sessions.
