Weird noises, nightmares, flickering lights–nighttime is full of things trying to keep us up. Luckily, teddy bears are night warriors, protecting their owners from these terrors. Every night, Teddy Sleepyhead navigates down through sleep’s enemies to catch Z’s and unlock well-restedness before sunrise. Teddy Sleepyhead takes a spin on the classic 2D platformer by utilizing vertical movement; teddy's journey takes him down into deep sleep while enemies try to keep him up. I built and designed this game entirely myself (with a little bit of coding help here and there).
Living Small is a book that explores the experience of living in a tiny home. I interviewed three homeowners about why they decided to live small, how they create storage, how they curate their spaces, and much more.
