We immediately got to work after starting our team creating a fun, addictive game that would establish their reputation on the national stage. Pathogen's success was exciting and affirming, reaching beyond the United States to be the top board game on the iOS App Store in over 30 countries. 

The goal was to create a strategy board game that was simple to learn but almost infinitely hard to master, similar to Go or Chess. The gameplay mimics the division of cells as players compete to conquer the entire board first.

Once we cemented the main game mechanic, we added the ability to play on a wide range of platforms with anywhere from 1-4 players. We wanted to capture the fun of sitting around a board game with family or friends, enjoying a shared experience together. 

We created a complex and deep artificial intelligence system to play within a single player campaign or against two players working as a team, and added an online gameplay system with custom lobbies and rankings. 

The game was internationally acclaimed and won a plethora of awards. See the full list of recognitions below.
