Development of original IP. My current project is The Time Tribe, a time travel adventure for kids aged 8-13. With an overarching story that brings players to some of human history’s most exciting times and places, the experience combines serial storytelling, point-and-click adventure gaming, the best of virtual world activities, and real world quest objectives. With all content derived from actual history and archaeology, the game is designed to encourage thoughtful engagement with the common problems humanity has faced across time and space, and to foster empathy and appreciation for other ways of life in our increasingly global society.
I'm an archaeologist and historian who sees transmedia storytelling as a perfect way to frame the stories I want to tell about our collective human history.
