    Still from video game

  • Play

Major project:


Conceived in the wake of the MeToo movement, UNDER is a video game that immerses the player in a familiar world, rendered with a critical feminist perspective. This first person interactive experience evokes issues around consent by stripping away the players agency, gives shape to the echoes of trauma that haunt so many women, and illuminates the fabric of a culture that continues to nurture toxic gender politics.


  • My practice as a game designer focuses on the potential for the medium to explore complex social and political ideas. I create narrative driven interactive experiences that prioritise the female gaze.
