HOP: The Movie Game

An action-adventure puzzle game for the hit Universal film on Nintendo DS


I pitched the game at greenlight, negotiated the movie license, hired the developer, and oversaw production.

Developed in just a few short months, HOP: The Movie Game was a remarkable achievement in creative problem-solving and close collaboration between myself, developer Engine Software, and the filmmakers at Illumination Entertainment & Universal Pictures. We launched a great, family-friendly game in stores worldwide just in time for the movie’s release.
