Game Script Example:
The Slap Friends! Character Quips Spreadsheet
[Excel Spreadsheet]

Slap Friends! is a light and silly indie puppet fighting game developed by my friends at Pretty Fox Games. They asked me to create dialogue quips for the game's characters to say (displayed as text on screen) within the game. I worked directly with the game's designer to ensure his vision for each of the game's characters was expressed through their dialogue. The final game has been showcased at Indiecade as well as Alt.Ctrl.GDC and The Experimental Gameplay Workshop at GDC 2016. Warning: there's some pretty groan-worthy puns on display here, particularly with the Fisherman character.



Game Script Example:
Top Wing: Virtual Training Missions - Early draft script
[Excel Spreadsheet]

An example of writing for an existing IP to match character voice and tone, in this case a game for the NickJr show Top Wing. The show is for very young children and features four cadets training to perform rescue operations, each with their own domain (land, sea, air, etc.) and unique personality. Unlike some other IP, the characters for this property were allowed to speak directly to the player to explain game mechanics. Presented here is an earlier draft to ensure it features only my own writing, as later drafts contained some line edits from other contributors.
[You can play the final game online on the NickJr website.]
