Prior to the release of Glitch, Hunicke left Tiny Speck to co-found Funomena together with Martin Middleton. They announced their first project in October 2012: “to build a game that takes data from a pedometer and does something fun with it.” Their first video game is Luna, a VR-focused art game which is described as “a tactile puzzle game set in a vibrant and sculptural story-book world”. They then developed Wattam, a spiritual successor of Bandai Namco’s Katamari series directed by its creator, Keita Takahashi. It was released on PlayStation 4 and PC (via Epic Games Store) on December 17th, 2019.


Hunicke began her career at Electronic Arts where she worked on multiple games including MySims as Lead Designer and Boom Blox and its sequel as a Producer. After leaving EA, she was hired by thatgamecompany where she produced Journey, an online cooperative game for the PlayStation 3. After its completion, Hunicke joined Tiny Speck to develop the social MMORPG Glitch, teaming with Katamari Damacy creator and personal friend Keita Takahashi. Prior to the release of Glitch, Hunicke left Tiny Speck to co-found Funomena together with Martin Middleton, former teammate and engineer at thatgamecompany. In October 2012, Funomena announced their first project: “to build a game that takes data from a pedometer and does something fun with it.” They have since announced two new games, Wattam (directed by Keita Takahashi) and Luna, “a tactile puzzle game set in a vibrant and sculptural story-book world”, both of which are currently in development and executive produced by Hunicke.

Following her work at Electronic Arts, Hunicke joined thatgamecompany as producer. She joined the team in the early conceptual stages for the studio’s third project Journey, a multiplayer cooperative adventure game released in early 2012.

From 2001 to 2004, Hunicke, Marc LeBlanc, and Robert Zubeck created the Mechanics-Dynamics-Aesthetics framework to focus and improve game analysis. The framework categorizes the many aspects of a game as Mechanics, Dynamics, or Aesthetics, and outlines the inverse perspectives of designer and player. From the perspective of the designer, the Mechanics generate Dynamics which generate Aesthetics. From the perspective of the player, the player experiences the game through the Aesthetics, which are provided by Dynamics that emerge from the game mechanics.
