Firefly Light-Up gameplay

Firefly Light-Up is a single-player action puzzle mini-game within Disney Fairies' Pixie Hollow massively multiplayer online game, released in September 2008. Players use a fairy leaf basket to collect and release colored light, lighting up fireflies and avoiding the moths that would knock over the basket! Different colors of light have different properties that can help players light up multiple fireflies at once to earn more points. Each level is a new challenge with a fresh set of colored lights and a unique pattern of fireflies and moths.

I designed the majority of the Firefly Light-Up game levels and tested, iterated, and sequenced all fifty levels. In addition, I worked with the Schell Games Pixie Hollow development team on other aspects of the MMO design, particularly fairy crafting. I created and iterated a branching hierarchy of unlockable recipes for all seventy-five fairy clothing items that players could craft at launch, and also detailed out the ingredients needed and crafting-mini-game levels to be completed for each specific item recipe.
