Residency Project

Through her time in Screen Queensland’s Games Residency program, Jessica has been working with Julian on creating their studio’s second release, Momento. The game is a cozy room decorator with a twist that explores how we imbue everyday objects with meaning and the effect they have on our life decisions. 

Residency Goals

Jessica aims to meet and work with other indie game artist during her time as a resident and collaborate with them on new and exciting projects. For Momento, she hopes to have the game ready to apply for funding and publishing.
