Game Development

Concept and visual development for Earth Girl 2 was initially centered around before-and-after scenarios for a variety of Earth hazards in Southeast Asia. Regional location and particular hazards were visualized in a variety of visual styles, according to a dramatic treatment. Characters and story were also developed through visual exploration.
