Hello Japan! is a visual novel developed for Japanese Language Learners at the beginning level. Using game mechanics as well as illustrations, cultural notes, and video, Hello Japan! supplements most Japanese textbooks.

My role in the Hello Japan! project was to create illustrations, digital artifacts, and assist in research and grant writing.
