Tom Hanrahan - Game Designer

Hello! My name is Tom Hanrahan and this is my video game design portfolio. This portfolio represents work I've done both as a professional and as a hobbyist game designer. I would love to hear from you if you've played and enjoyed any of these games or levels, or if you have a job opportunity and you think I'd be a good fit for your project.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online (2011)


In 2010, I joined The Amazing Society to work on the game Marvel Super Hero Squad Online as a Game / Level Designer. The game is a browser-based MMO set in the Marvel universe.

It was released for PC / web browsers in 2011.

F.E.A.R Extraction Point (2006)


The first professional project I built levels for, F.E.A.R Extraction Point was released in October 2006. The thing that I'm most proud of about this project is knowing that I was part of a small team of Level Designers who helped the developer (Timegate Studios) gain credibility as an FPS developer, having previously never developed an FPS title. The game won PC Gamer's "Expansion Pack of the Year" for 2006
