It’s getting cold in Ithaca.
This is my favorite time of the year. I have a lab space with a couple of grad students. We turned a storage room into a pretty cozy workspace.

Here’s what I’ve been working on.
REDUCT is a puzzle game for children about evaluating code. Ian is building the game, and I’m helping with narrative and design.
It looks something like this right now
The story centers around Starchild, an alien hopping from planet to planet in search of his home.
Planets are themed by programming concepts - the physical appearance of a planet’s resident is a pseudo- representation of that concept.
Levels teach players concepts bit by bit, untimately combining them.
Starchild’s ship runs on stardust, obtained by completing levels.
A very fun project to ideate on!
