Nicki Minaj: The Empire

Mobile Narrative Celebrity Game
Glu Mobile

Nicki Minaj: The Empire was a celebrity role-playing game for mobile devices featuring the music, voice, likeness, and inspiration of Nicki Minaj, the queen of rap. 

As a Narrative Game Designer for the project, I helped develop the characters and storyline of the game, write quest scripts, and script narrative sequences using the game's custom scripting editor.

Using the game's custom script editor, I placed characters, moved cameras, triggered animations, and blocked out scenes for key moments in the game.
