Cosmic Kitty Pop!
Cosmic Kitty Pop was a pet project of mine that I used as jumping point to learn every aspect of game development. I came up with a concept for a very simple game (whack-a-mole with a twist) so that I could easily teach myself fundamentals of development while also flexing my art and UI design skills. The result is a an adorable whack-a-mole arcade game where you get to rescue cats from exploding in space.
I developed Cosmic Kitty Pop with GameSalad, and did art and animations in Illustrator and Flash. Sound Effects were recorded (very professionally) on my iPhone and edited in Audacity. I had help with development, audio, polish, and UI from my colleagues at Happy Badger Studio.
