“All this new technology
will eventually give us new feelings
that will never completely displace the old ones,
leaving everyone feeling quite nervous
and split in two.”

Crow Crime: A Murder Mystery (2019)
Crow Crime: A Murder Mystery is a bite-sized, light-hearted game following the private detective C.C. Crowe on a case involving a missing Christmas pudding. The game was made as part of the Bitsy Secret Santa event in 2019, with the prompts 'multiple narrators', 'coincidence', and 'misunderstanding'.
novena is a playable poem about a tiny, persistent bird who just wants to comfort the ocean, and explores the themes of what it means to be a good friend, and how to open up and ask for help when you need it. novena is the winner of the 2019 Freeplay Micro-Game Award.
