Mighty Mysids is an educational game aimed to explain what a Mysid Shrimp is and show why they are so important for the ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay.
Some of my responsibilities in this project were:
- Level Design
- Game Design
- Most UI implementation and HUD
- Graphics for UI
For this game we were given research articles and a lot of information about the mysid shrimp from the Chesapeake Bay to make a game explaining or showcasing the importance of these tiny animals. The research included many of the behavior that the shrimp presented while the biologists were investigating them. My main responsibility was to create a single level that would be used for the entirety of the game. To achieve this I tried to research a little about the Chesapeake Bay to be as accurate as possible with the elements I wanted to include in this level.
