About Us

Hello! We’re a team of multidisplinary creatives, comprised of indie devs, voice actors, and designers. We are inspired by the immersive experiences VR brings and we truly hope that our first game, Superfly, is a game that empowers any individual to feel like a hero in their own city.

If you have any feedback, suggestions, or just want to say hi, be sure to contact us! You might end up seeing your recommendations implemented in future updates of the game! 😊

I started Superfly as a solo project, and I recruited and led the rest of the team. I wrote most of the game code, including all the movement modes, the world generation, and the graphics optimization.

Role
Lead Writer, Voice Actor, Sound Editor
Pronouns
He/him

I originally joined the team as a programmer, but we quickly discovered that we had plenty of coders and not enough creators. So I took on multiple roles in that realm, finding audio clips, writing the dialogue, and recording voice lines. Fun fact: most of the characters in the game are voiced by me!

Creating and coding the city of Superfly can be challenging, but the amount of freedom it gives the player makes it all worth it in the end.

She/her

I am currently a senior visual arts student at the University of Washington. I like long walks from my bed to the pantry and procrastinating on projects with other projects. When I am not working on my 3D modeling or animating skills, you can find me running errands as a costume designer for a remote theater production while scarfing down pumpkin spiced latte flavored caffeinated bars.
