Warm Shadow is a VR game. It has been played by over 100 people at 3 different galleries and public spaces in New York. We as a team of two programmers, an audio designer, a 2D animator spent 5 months on it with our free time (we all have another main daily duty in school or company). We will publish it on Steam/ Viveport soon.

My roles are the director and lead artist.

         The main character named Shadow, a kind warm shadow differentiated from other evil ones. It is a representation of the player's dark side that needs a player's help to grow up in a moral way by defeating other people's evil shadows. Eventually, save the human world and shadow world.

        Players will borrow power from their shadow and use it as weapons to physically hit enemies. Also, they can shootout their shadow as an extension of their hand grabbing objects or attacking enemies from a long distance.

"Zsa Zsa’s role was facilitating constant communication with her teammates. Every day, she participates in the meetings focused on clarifying and achieving specific goals. She is not afraid to ask questions nor receive feedback on her creations. Moreover, she has shown strong creative skills. An example of this is the jewelry gift box theme that she created for the bonus game. This innovative feature was stand-out in terms of concept, color choice, and graphic design."
