Mark Hanson

Game Design Freshman – 2025

Hello my name is Mark Hanson. I am a freshman at Bradley University who majors in Game Design. My career goal is to make game in a specific genre and also get extremely good at coding with C#. My Dream is to create I game centered around one of my characters I created as a kid to honor my younger self who wanted to put ideas from my head to a program or paper. So far, I have been learning Unity and C# from many of talented individuals, and I feel like I was able to get a great beginner’s grasp at how to create very entertaining games. I also have knack for creating things with drawings or animations. Even though they are on a lesser professional level, I still enjoy it for fun.

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.
