Whilst working at Tt Games I had the pleasure of being the designer for Sonic’s Adventure World in LEGO Dimensions. I’ve put together a video overview of the entire hub, showcasing its content and explaining what my involvement was during the whole process:
This is a typical example of what goes into making an adventure world, and it’s a process I was a part of multiple times through Dimensions’ ongoing development; a general overview of what I do at Tt and what I’ve worked on can be found here.

Working in design at Tt from 2015-2017 had the privilege of working on a large variety of notable IPs across four separate projects. I have summarised my role on each project below, but broadly speaking, and depending on the project’s stage of development, my role could consist of:
Implementing events and incidental gameplay myself using Tt’s in-house level editor and scripting languages
Designing each event (puzzles, quests, races, minigames) and collecting all the information into a concise but complete hub design document
Creating a blockout of an entire hub using SketchUp
Working with other departments to ensure that their created assets meet the requirements of both the design and the license-holder
Researching an IP, identifying key moments/set pieces/concepts that can be referenced or adapted into gameplay
Training new team members on both design principles and use of the tools, and maintaining the documentation wiki
Reviewing the work of junior team members
Fixing bugs, implementing feedback and maintaining old hubs as issues are identified through the development cycle
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Released November 2017 LMSH2 continues the story of the first LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game, including an whole new cast of characters and a new hub to explore; Chronopolis – a mishmash of various places and times, created by Kang the Conqueror.
