Flyer Hydrant - 2019
Stop fires, save lives.
About:

I oversaw production of the Game Makers 2019 Alumni team.
 During 2018, various alumni reached out asking me if I could create a team for them, saddened they didn't have Game Makers at CalArts when they were students. I reached out to past alumni, created a team and welcomed them into the Game Makers family. 
This group created the first mobile game under Game Makers.
