You are alone at Tower 18. Your only companion went to salvage parts from Tower 15 for some much-needed repairs, however that was several hours ago, and you have not received a transmission since. Dead Air begins with players taking control of Tower 18’s command console and acknowledging a long overdue transmission. Only by carefully managing the tower’s failing power generator, one-way communication network, and the impending darkness can you lead your companion safely back home.
This project was my second time leading a game as a Director/Producer at CMDC Studios. I lead a team of 20 developers during the three-week July Summer Slow Jam hosted by the Portland Indie Game Squad. I coordinated communication between our specialized creative teams and created our project itch.io page using assets developed by the Design Team. Additionally, I worked closely with our Narrative Team to edit dialogue and craft the foundational lore of the Dead Air universe.
