Charlie Mackin

Game Designer

In June 2020, my team shipped 15 games as part of the launch of the new PBS IP Hero Elementary. These games were a huge success, for which my team won several awards. In the first 6 months after launch, the 4 games featured on the PBSKids app and website were played over 20 million times. Players also played these games for twice as long on average as any other PBS games.

Each game is made for an audience of 5-8 year olds, and teaches a core STEM concept. I was Designer or Lead Designer on all of these games, as well as writing all the scripts, and playtesting at local schools.
