This project was my thesis game for my Masters of Fine Arts degree in Interactive Media & Games from the University of Southern California. I wanted to see if I could tell a story using a variety of short, personal games. Playing through them in a specific order reveals a larger narrative about a struggling game designer who lives with his mother in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The game makes use of the mobile phone medium to tell a meta story in novel ways.
Featuring cameos and art by: Blendo Games (Quadrilateral Cowboy, 30 Flights of Loving), Paloma Dawkins (Gardenarium), Amy Huang, Tonia b, and more.
Coming Spring 2017 to Android and iOS.
