I was approached to work on a game called Tinselfly, building environments and game flow for a surreal and incredible world

Tinselfly is heavily rooted in the surreal, and mixed with old world architecture, I helped model and UV something unique

Other times, I got to conceptualize out entirely new ideas. Some are for areas that the player will frequent

And others will be worlds that are only partially explored.

Tinselfly is not just one world, but many, each with its own story. Some of those stories are discoverable, but the player is encouraged to fill in their own details on many others

About

ProfilePic.jpg
I'm Adam Keating, and I'm a game designer

I'm also a 3D artist, environment artist, character rigger and more. I've been working with 3D content from one end of the production pipeline to the other, starting with concept art all the way to implementation into game engines like Unreal and Unity. 

From real time to pre-rendered, I love it all. Feel free to download any of the games I've either created alone, or with friends. And there will be more to come.
