Following her exit from EA, Hunicke joined indie studio thatgamecompany where she worked as a producer on the award winning PS3 game, Journey. Hunicke then co-founded Funomena with thatgamecompany engineer Martin Middleton.

There, she worked on games such as Wattam and Luna. Aside from Funomena, Hunicke also joined Katamari Damacy and Keita Takahashi at Tiny Speck to develop the MMORPG, Glitch.

Due to Hunicke’s work advocating for women with the industry, her contributions to indie game development, and her milestones in game design, we felt it fitting to celebrate her on our list of influential women in gaming.
