Long stories, shortly told.

I'm Ciara Burkett, a recovering web developer and solo game developer making pixel art/voxel art pieces and tiny narrative games. I hope you find joy and wonder in the small worlds I create!

Works-in-Progress

Right now, I'm working on a couple projects and two very different games:

To the Wolves


To the Wolves is a 2.5D pixel and voxel art cinematic platformer I'm making in Unity 2017. Set across fictionalized African nations, To the Wolves takes place in the final hours in the life of a young prisoner sentenced to death for crimes against the kingdom.

Picky Pumpkins



Voxelectronics


A series of individual voxel art pieces featuring retro/vintage technologies.

The Library Of

To be announced.

With Your Support

As a 100% solo indie game developer and artist, everything you experience is lovingly hand-crafted by me (unless otherwise stated). As a Patron, you become a part of the creative process -- learn what I learn! Get early access to text-based tutorials on my pixel art, voxel art, and polygonal modeling workflows as I perfect the tools I use to bring you unique experimental games.

Where You Can Find Me

I'm most active on TwitterTumblrMastodon, and Ello! But I'm learning how to use InstagramDribbble, and Behance.

Starting this year, I'll be streaming at 9am Eastern Time for a couple hours every Wednesday morning on Twitch!

You can play my games on Itch.io!
