Welcome to my portfolio! My name is Michael Merritt, and I am a student in the Class of 2024 at Quinnipiac University. I am double majoring in Computer Science (BS) and Game Design and Development (BA).
My interests include programming as well as both playing and designing video games. I am an avid player of strategy, first-person shooter, and puzzle games, and have designed of my own as well. I particularly enjoy considering how systems in games fit together to create unique and compelling gameplay, especially when those systems require complex balancing to work together.
I have worked on teams for game jams, hackathons, class projects, and internships with the Maryland Innovation and Security Institute. More on these projects and what I gained from them can be found in the Games section and the Code Projects section.
