FRAGILE EQUILIBRIUM

More Info

Fragile Equilibrium is an action game of melancholic balance.

My time so far working at MAGIC Spell Studios on Fragile Equilibium has had me mainly on a developer position the game, working on gameplay, bug finding and fixing, and optimizations of existing systems. I've also contributed to the design of new features and systems such as stage-specific mechanics that alter how one might progress through a given stage, to aiding in the design of boss behaviors and sequences. I've also taken on writing and producing the soundtrack for the game. The game is out now on Xbox One, Steam, Itch.io, and the Windows Store.
