Narrative conversational game // PC + Mac

"Basements & Bugbears is a short story game about some friends who are pretty sad, probably queer, and certainly nerds. Try to inspire a group of people struggling with their personal bugbears over the course of one last session of B&B. Roll some dice, give some smooches, and slay a dragon."

- Game Description

Basements & Bugbears is Sam Celeste and Sydney Lang's Intermediate Games project.


As a UX researcher, I organized and facilitated playtest sessions for different builds of the game, during which I collected behavioral data. After each test, I compiled the data into usability reports and identified areas of difficulty for the players. I presented this data to the developers and offered potential solutions to the identified problems.
