3D Art - I created the eel model from scratch and gave it an electric particle effect.

GUI Art - I created most of the in-game GUI, including all the buttons, the progress indicators in the right-hand corner, and the content in the tutorial.

Menu Design - I helped design every out-of-game screen, by setting up a template for everyone to work off of and by filling in most of the content.

Sound Effects - I incorporated some sounds that I found on www.freesound.org, such as the sound effects associated with every jellyfish action, the eel's electricity, the whistle, and the "end of level" success sound.
