ConVERBance

A two player, custom controller game, encouraging the discussion on gender expectations. Inspired by "for her" products and the game Bop It, ConVERBance instructs players with gender-specific verbs and players must do the correct action on the controller. I joined the Sandbox team in the 2nd half of the year to polish the game and I identified 3 goals to move the game forward: (1) Unifying visual style while showing distinct separation between sides, (2) Create a less distracting gameplay experience, (3) Pick a typeface that not only suited ConVERBance, but also helped to develop a brand for the game. After that state, my focus shifted towards custom controller creation with the team's hardware programmer.
