Sayonara Wild Hearts

I provided design and production advisory services to Simogo, a Swedish independent videogame studio, for their game Sayonara Wild Hearts, published by Annapurna Interactive.

In Simogo’s words: Sayonara Wild Hearts is a dreamy arcade game about riding motorcycles, skateboarding, dance battling, shooting lasers, wielding swords, and breaking hearts at 200 mph.

I supported the studio with copywriting and editing for external copy, in-game text, and song lyrics. Additionally, I advised on business strategy and development. And over the course of two years, I was party to hundreds and hundreds of hours of discussions about level design, visual design, and user testing.

Amongst many other awards and accolades, Sayonara was awarded a BAFTA for Artistic Achievement and Apple Arcade Game of the year.
