Marble Knights
WayForward Technologies
Level Designer
 
As a Level Designer on Marble Knights, I was charged with designing the levels for two worlds:
 
- World 3: Wizard Academy
- World 5: Witch Wood
Each world had 3 levels within. 
I worked with the Director to draft paper prototypes on graph paper to proof my designs. 
Once approved, I moved on to the 2D block out using parameters set forth by the Director to ensure synergy across all Worlds. Once the timing and flow were approved, I then placed enemies and scripted events; including enemy encounters, cutscenes, puzzles, camera splines, and interactive items.
