Leshy (former title: Quicksilver Blaze) is a 3D 3rd person platformer, where you play a ball with the ability to grow and shrink. It was developed as a Master's game project at Digipen over January - May 2011 by Team Radioactive Dodos. Leshy was nominated as a Finalist in the 2012 Indie Propeller Awards in the categories of Best Design, Best Audio and Technical Excellence. Leshy was also awarded Best Master's Technology and Best Master's Game in the 2011 Digipen Game Awards.

I am the Designer of the team, which means my responsibilities are chiefly in design of levels, gameplay mechanics, and general feel of the game. In addition to design, my programming contributions to the game so far have been implementing the behavior for environmental objects such as checkpoints and moving platforms/objects, level editor functionality, the HUD, the 2 time attack modes and general bug fixes.

Team Radioactive Dodos are:
Fanny Paola Vadillo Herrera - Producer
Malte Skarupke - Technical Lead
Andrew Friedland - Physics Lead
Chin Xiang Chong - Designer
