A remote team building experience for Atlassians

Events as we know them are over. How might we reimagine Atlassian’s Big Bash for a post-covid world? Under the pressures of the pandemic, Atlassian wanted to move their 15th annual team-building event online. Set on Mars in 2046, a multiplayer experience casts Atlassians as protagonists who work together on a high stakes mission to help make Earth habitable again. Bringing team members together, increasingly complex game levels present puzzles and tasks to solve. A hybrid of cut scenes, video chat, games and animations, Oddity is a fun and engaging team-building experience.

My Role

Over 6 months, I was involved in the remote workshop design, conceptual development, art direction, UX and UI design across the 4 games. I was one of 2 designers on the project.


We developed a story set in space to mirror the separation of working from home. This animation set the scene for the story world, while exciting the teams to get started.

Team-building games

We created 4 multiplayer games that encouraged collaboration. Users could feel the co-presence of the team with a shared canvas, video call, user mouse presence, and by working together towards a common goal.

1 – Connect the signal back to Earth

2 – Restore robot computer vision

3 – Locate the robots on Earth

4 – Build a robot together

An Atlassian-wide leaderboard offered bragging rights, and helped teams feel connected in an isolating year.
