Re:Search, A Campus Story


Getting students to engage with coursework is a challenge for most professors. Dr. Louie, a professor teaching an Introduction to Research course at UC Davis–like many professors before her, wondered if there was more she could be doing to teach her students the fundamental concepts surrounding the world of research. Through this, the RPG Re:Search, A Campus Story was born.

Tasked with meeting prominent researchers, players set out on a journey through time where they will meet famous authors, scientists, and artists–all to better understand the many shapes and sizes that research comes in.

The game is currently deployed and is being played by students enrolled in Dr. Louie’s Introduction to Research course.

 Tilt The Snake


Tilt the Snake is your classic snake game, but instead of pressing buttons to move, you tilt your phone to control the snake! Beware of bombs, and don’t touch the borders, or you lose a life! There are various items with different functions that appear as you score higher or as your snake grows longer. Currently, this game is only available for android. If interested, get Tilt the Snake on google play! Feel free to give any suggestions/feedback!

The Polaroid


A game made from Ludem Dare 36, it’s a puzzle game that takes advantage of perspective in order to proceed. The feeling of the game (art & music) was inspired by the game Life is Strange. The game is about 5 minutes long, and it was rated as top 10 for a long time for the LD36 and also was written by as well as played by some streamers!
