Jacob Crowell

Game Design Sophomore – 2024

Marhaban y willkommen! My name is Jacob, and I’m a wizard. I’m a Game Design Major and Creative Writing Minor, and I love making things. I’m not particularly good at any one thing, but that just means there’s more for me to learn about! I love learning about everything and anything, most especially how to make things. I’ve worked with blacksmithing, server administration, graphic design, 3D modeling, and I’ve written several short stories. My favorite genres of music are folk and sea shanties, heavy metal, Rock Nacional, and swing. I also love languages (I’ve taken Spanish, German, and Arabic, and I am teaching myself Dutch) and mythology. Language is the fastest way to know someone’s story, and everyone on Earth has a unique story that I love to listen to.

Theia: a distant exoplanet, home to a number of diverse alien lifeforms, is now on the brink of ecological collapse. However, Gaia Enterprises is on a mission to revive the planet and has chosen you to join their expedition. You will create your very own unique and vibrant plant life to grow on Theia- be it a tree, a flower, or a new type of growth!

In augmented reality, explorers will be able to customize their own plant to their liking with thousands of possible combinations. Before leaving the planet, each explorer will be able to take home a photo of their creation, so that they can remember the impact they made.
