About Froglin Games

Our game started out as a school project between seven students. We started out with the goal to make a real-time card game and have faced many struggles achieving that goal over development. We wanted to take the exciting process of deck building into a more fluid and dynamic gameplay experience.

I have a BFA in Graphic Design with minors in Animation and Game Design. I love to design, animate/motion graphics, and create silly drawings. I love to play, and create, video games!
Role:
I helped create character designs and illustrated card artworks for the game. I did research, make wireframes, design the mana icons, UI assets, and logo. I run the team’s social media and worked on the website. Along with Luke, I help schedule the meetings and keep track of any information to send to the team.

Programmer, Designer
I’m a Computer Science Major and I love making games! My main trade is programming but I’m a designer at heart.  When I’m not making games, I like to play music, draw, and (of course) play them!
Role:
I did a lot of work on this game’s code, engineered most of the client-side code, implemented supporting features server-side, and managed several large scale refactors, one of which directly affected our networking code. I also had a hand in making some of the particle effects, and wrote all of the music! I distributed tasks to the rest of the team and held two weekly meetings to keep things on track.
Fun fact:
I love to rotate into other creative disciplines, such as game design, art, special effects, animation, and music and sound effects!

I have a bachelors in Computer Science with a concentration on game systems. Outside of school, I’ve worked on QA automation in various contexts from the Madden football game to VitalChek’s website.
Role:
My role in this project was primarily building out the effect system. This was our way of implementing what cards do when they are played, died, when other cards die, etc. This system grew into a fully editor based tool where you can script the actions all of the cards in our game purely through the editor.
