The Wine Spectator Foundation Scholarship is an annual scholarship that awards $50,000 a year to deserving students studying communication at the University of Miami.
Students vying for the Wine Spectator Foundation Scholarship were required to submit a project about the following topics: wine, food, restaurants, travel, and tourism. The project could consist of a video, web site, press kit, advertising campaign, journalistic story, or research paper.
I created an online game design document describes details for a 2D platform game that has novel mechanics, original story and characters. Game concept and artwork is the sole property of Morgan H. McKie.
Winning submission for 2017 Wine Spectator Scholarship.
Girllee is the main character of the Grape Escape. This character was lovingly named after my grandmother who was lovingly nickname by her husband, "Girllee." As a hard working Jamaican country woman, she has created a lucrative vineyard located in her hometown St. Cathrine. From sun up to sun down she is tirelessly working to make the best "Sweet Red" to ever come out of Jamaica.
This is a 2D game, with original high quality 2D sprites. Girllee's character design was inspired by old school pinup girl ads, that I then made child friendly . Everything should be very colorful and feel alive, with highly animated scenarios and layered backgrounds.
