Game Design Junior – 2023

Hello, I’m Jessica Barthelt, and I am a junior Game Design Major from Lisle, IL. This year, I was the team lead for the exhibit Mismatched Mayhem. I love creating and being able to express myself through my work, whether through drawing, writing, or coding. I am incredibly passionate about building interactive worlds that players want to explore and learn about. Regardless of the medium, I am always looking for new ways to show off my skills and challenge myself to improve.

Welcome to a wacky mismatched world, where mixed-up beasts clash in duels of cool. Mismatched Mayhem is a 2D arcade brawler in which players assemble and battle it out with their own custom monsters. Personalize all aspects of your creature, then send it to fight in a duel of epic proportions. Monsters will engage in combat in a variety of arenas using lightning, bananas, ray guns, and even their own limbs. Aid your monsters in combat by cheering them on. Nothing is off-limits in this matchup for the ages!
