My position had me managing the team with a form of SCRUM and team evaluation through programs such as Axosoft. I worked in engine assembling animation and attaching and editing scripts in C#. I worked with the whole team making sure people stayed on the same page. I managed the social media pages, and created the company and its presence at events such as Phoenix Comicon and Game On Expo.

Crimson Nights was created to give a new experience of couch coop that had been locked behind online multiplayer. We aimed to create games such as monster hunter that friends could all play together on the same screen.
