Magic Cat Academy



In 2016 I was tasked with the creation of the story, animation, and gameplay concept of the game! Let's go on a journey with a selection of work...

Mega Man 30th Anniversary Illustration Set













A series of illustrations counting down to the 30th anniversary of the Megaman game series, which greatly influenced my decision to become an animator. 

Excluding the first and last piece, each illustration is based on the ending of a main title classic game, starting from 10 to 1.

The original motivation for the player was to get your stolen hat back and save your school!
 (The fire turned out to be a bit much.)


Finally, we settled on getting your book back (as well as stopping the rampaging ghosts). To save on file size and to be more efficient, I changed the intro to take place in one shot! No more camera panning. 

(Pt. 1)

We also aimed to place the tutorial within the intro. A "tutorial" backdrop would fall down to indicate you were in tutorial mode! We ended up moving it to right before the first level to not disrupt the flow. 
(Pt. 2)

Ending, resulting in the final score screen for the players. Black bars would appear so the player would know they were watching a cutscene.
(There was originally a gameplay feature where you could choose to rescue your friends, and depending on who you saved would affect who would appear in the ending.)

Here's a different story concept: protect the trick-or-treaters!
