Firefly is a gamejam game developed for the 2017 MEGA Newbies and Vets game jam, where the theme of the game was Color.
You play as a small firefly lost in a forest trying to light lanterns to light your way home. Change your color and get past obstacles in order to light the lanterns you need!
On the five-person team, I was in charge of Level Design and led the creative process for conceptualizing the core game concept and mechanics.
The level was designed to be intentionally confusing and make players feel as if they were lost in a larger forest. This is achieved through twisting paths that loop back in on themselves in a labyrinthine style, and the double layering of the asset feels as though you are looking through a set of leaves that also further disorients the player.
