In this thesis, I built a PC game called Mira’s Cleansing Services. It is a sidescroller game that follows the story of a female exorcist for-hire who is also a high school student. Using ABC Scrum, a modified version of Scrum for game development, I developed the game using Game Maker. Additionally, I created all the art and music in different software. Because of time constraints and because I was working alone, I only developed the first level of the game. However, I plan to continue developing the game after this semester to eventually complete and publish it. My ultimate goal is to enter the game development industry. Game development has become a large and growing field over the past few years because of how video games are becoming a mainstream form of entertainment. 1
