In my work, I’ve always drawn inspiration from old NES games I used to play when I was a kid. With this project, I wanted to recreate that warm fuzzy nostalgic feeling of playing retro games. I like experimenting with colours and textures in my work to create fun playful worlds, which led me to the creation of Bitter Lemons, a simple run and shoot game where you must destroy the evil lemons! I created this game using Gamefroot and presented it at my degree show at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London. I set the game up with a NES controller and used an old tv to create a more retro feel.
