It Moves Above
It Moves Above is an eerie, unsettling platform adventure game giving the player a challenging yet paradoxically fun control of an inanimate ragdoll.
It offers a disturbing narrative experience, unique in its plurality of interpretations, focusing on mourning, posterity and the relationship with the body.
It Moves Above was exhibited during the Nordic Game Conference May 22-25 / 2018.

Hologram Away
Hologram Away is virtual reality Sci-Fi adventure game where the action takes place at the very end and death of the universe. The main character heads to a wandering planet, hoping to find a way to survive. 
In most games, there is a 1st or a 3rd person focalization. The gameplay idea here is to intricate both. I want to explore the possibility of existing twice through VR, see if it can change the way I perceive myself and how individuality can resist spatial and temporal dissociation.
For this project my inspirations were both N64 games style and modern painting. I experimented mixing digital prints with gouache in order to create an orignal but also unsettling aestetics.

Together (gameplay concept proof)
Together is a short action-adventure puzzle game for 2 players, made in collaboration with Mélanie Courtinat.  
Genderless figures are lost in a vast ivory tower map, rigged with many traps, and will have to choose if they will compete, or collaborate in order to progress and finish the game. 
A second screen visually illustrates their choices in terms of gameplay, showing the two characters move away from eachother when the players compete, and getting closer, kissing, when they collaborate.
