Forgotton Anne takes place in a fictional world called Forgotten Lands, a magical parallel universe where lost objects that were once loved by their owners — everything from missing socks to discarded lamps — come to life, hoping one day that they might be remembered again and returned to the real world.

As an adolescent Enforcer of her father figure, Bonku, Anne will set out on a seamless cinematic adventure game with light puzzle & platforming elements, and no loading screens, as the gameplay blends with Anne's coming of age story.

About Me

Profile Link tint.jpg

Greetings, I’m George, a Game Designer with a bit of Spartan grit and tan, dedicated to crafting immersive gameplay.

 

With over eight years of experience in the games industry, I have taken part in the creation and shipping of various projects, each with distinct scopes and team dynamics.  During my career I have assumed a variety of roles and responsibilities, from the nitty gritty level design and editing implementation for moment-to-moment gameplay, to the design of core systems and puzzle interactions, all the way to directing the interplay of Gameplay, Camera, and Interactive Storytelling. 

 

My creative passion is designing for games that aim to use their mechanics and tropes as a holistic language towards creating meaningful experiences rather than slavishly taking a player through the motions. I strive to add value and experience to my teams throughout the whole journey of turning nebulous ideas into tangible experiences, guiding them from their conceptual infancy, through pitching, prototyping, iterating, and on to production and release.

 

When I am not part of a studio project, I engage in contract and freelance work. If you're curious to explore or collaborate, feel free to reach out via email, or any of the contact info below.
