Ren Hu

Ren Hu

Ren Hu: Rebel Yell was a three time Playstation Award finalist beat’em up which –at the time- was the biggest action game ever made in HTML5.

I served as the director, producer, writer, and designer for Ren Hu, leading the project through the funding, pre-production, script writing, and prototyping stages to development. With a team of 7 students who had no previous professional game development experience, I oversaw the creation of a playable alpha featuring innovative technology that ended receiving high critical acclaim.
