Stellaris: Overlord

Paradox Interactive (2022), PC/Mac/Linux
Co-Lead Game Design

Overlord, a new full expansion for Stellaris, grants access to new features designed to unlock the next level of your empire. Guide a galaxy full of potential subjects to glory - or subjugation. New mechanics provide many ways to specialize your vassals’ roles within your empire, bring new planets and subjects under your reign, and new magnificent megastructures to project your power further, faster.

As the lead designer for Subjugation features (Configurable Terms, Holdings and Allegiance War) and Specialist Empires, my job was to conceptualize, implement, balance and document the design of all mechanics involved in the feature. Working with the game director and a team of seven, we delivered one of the headlining features of Stellaris: Overlord complete and on time.
