Insurgency

Insurgency was created by New World Interactive and was released on January 22, 2014 on Steam for PC & MAC. Since launch, we have grown to 3 million users with continual content updates into 2017.

As Lead Level Designer & Environment Artist of Insurgency, I was responsible for the design, creation, art and asset placement for the majority of environments. Insurgency uses Source SDK / Hammer for development.

Note: Some of the environments in the live build of Insurgency have been altered slightly from original design and art showcased here. Special thanks to friends and colleagues at New World Interactive past and present. Games are a collaboration and I am thankful I am able to be a part of that.
