Skyler Madigan

Game Design Senior – 2022

My name is Skyler, and I’m a game designer, artist, and writer with a love for animals (including Pokémon) and a passion for game narrative. I live in the Los Angeles area but went out-of-state to participate in Bradley’s esteemed Game Design Program. I don’t regret my choice at all. During my time at Bradley, I made games with different mediums, genres, and graphics. When working with teams, I found out that I had a natural knack for high-level thinking. I tried my hand several times at project management and struggled to communicate with my peers. At Bradley, I learned the tools of project management from my professors and an industry-professional mentor, improved my phrasing, and coached my peers on planning and agile development. I currently work as the project manager on my senior capstone project, Disaster Golf. It’s a very demanding role to manage a project with more than 25 team members, but I still enjoy the challenge.
My goal is to manage projects at video game companies that can do so much more than entertain. Games are portals to new perspectives in a time of uncertainty, and I believe they can spur action when the world needs it most.

Disaster Golf is based on the aesthetic and style of miniature golf. Whimsical animals like hungry hippos, angry dinosaurs, and scared lizards that populate each hole; along with intriguing set pieces, like that volcano on the horizon beckoning you to its depths. Traverse colorful and chaotic environments, but be wary of something lurking beneath the surface.
There’s nothing slow or methodical about this golf game. Race against the clock to beat each hole’s par time. The variety of disaster combinations, from earth-shaking meteors to blinding sandstorms, can help you quickly reach each hole. Experiment and decide what you like best!
