Residency Project

Planning a game night? Compete in a cross-platform social deduction game show about deception, trickery and fun. Play as a contestant, interrogate your friends, discover everyone’s items and play with the upper hand. Or play to the chaos, spinning the wheel to even the playing field!

My game with Coen is an isometric top down beat-em-up style game about macho wizards who use muscles and magic to settle their disputes.
