ANYTOWN - GARAGE SALE MONSTERS
Anytown - Garage Sale Monsters is a story about one-year life slice of a 90's kid that moves to a new town and starting a new life with a divorced mom, a sister and a dog. Most of the other kids in Anytown are addicted with an absurd card game that they discovered from the dusty shelves of a garage sale.
In Anytown there are no wrong choices: the game never punish the player for their life choices, rather it rewards the player with different and interesting narratives for choosing their unique way.
It is a personal project in development with my partner Zeynep Akçay. It is still in production and you can follow our great adventure from Anytown - Garage Sale Monsters official website.
We are also talking about indie game development, design and business in our Turkish podcast series: Serbet Oyun Imalatı - Anytown Podcast.

Developing Monochroma was the greatest experience of my life. It was my first game in that scope, and we achieved many things beyond my dreams. We successfully Kickstarted Monochroma and made it Greenlit on Steam.
Monochroma is a cinematic puzzle platformer developed in Turkey. It’s a game about being a kid, growing up with a little brother that needs your help, facing obstacles, and solving unique puzzles in an industrial-alchemic world.
Monochroma’s gameplay builds upon the relationship and unspoken sacrifice between two brothers. Early on, your little brother injures his leg—so you must carry him on piggyback to continue further. You can’t run fast or jump high while carrying your brother. You must put your brother down temporarily in order to solve most of the puzzles—but you can only do this where there is light. Like most small children, he is afraid of the dark—and you can’t leave him behind.
BO & DI
Bo & Di is an interactive animated film for preschool kids designed and directed by Zeynep Akcay and developed by me. It is a part of a research project that was supported by Yasar University Research Grant Program. The project features Bo, Di and their companion Bee, who can experience conflicts depending on the children’s choices.
This interactive film and its traditional linear version were specifically tailored to measure the effects of interactivity in children between the ages 3 to 5, and a reception test was conducted among 218 children. The results were analyzed to discuss the connection between interactivity, engagement and understanding.
