My name is Sean Maraia. I am a game designer by training, currently working as a Senior Associate at United Technologies Climate Controls and Security, where I manage the development of a suite of HVAC mobile apps encompassing service, sales and use of our products. I attended the Rochester Institute of Technology, where I studied Game Design and Development from 2013 to 2016.
My main interests are in the different ways that a narrative in a game can be presented through the mechanics of the game. Rather than solely relying upon text, dialogue, music or editing, or the many other methods of delivering story, video games and new media are interactive, and can use the way that the audience interacts with the medium to deliver the narrative. These mechanics, and the way they can mesh to tell a story is the most interesting part of Game Design to me.
