Keeper and the Soldier! (KATS for short)

It started with a few sketches, which then lead to a collection of illustrations, and now a game which is being brought to life with Jumpbutton Studio. 


Some of you may have seen some of my early illustrations when this was still a personal project. I won’t go into much detail, but the characters and work were explorations in representing, a sort of visual dialogue with myself, personal hardships that I was scared or in denial of. I kept more of the private info and creative process regarding the artwork to myself and a small group of others; I thought it was something I would just explore in my own time. But since having been reached out to and supported by peers (personally and professionally), I’m looking forward to turning this personal project into something new with others and curious to see what players will take away from it~

We have a lot planned and I’m excited to see where it goes!


The Game

Keeper and the Soldier is a 2.5D stealth puzzle platformer from Jumpbutton Studio about a lonely young girl, destined to live a soldier's life, who finds something beautiful in a world ravaged by never-ending war. Thereupon finding a connection deeper than she ever thought possible. 

A forgotten guardian of the past, desperate and dying, puts its fate into the hands of the wandering child. 

Their bond sends them on a journey to preserve history. 

Note: This game stemmed from a personal project that our project lead started in 2009, which was a collection of characters, story, and artwork relating to her efforts in making sense of and coming to terms with her experiences with child abuse. Keeper and the Soldier uses symbolism and fantasy to the tales of a young girl's struggles; inspired by real ordeals. 

Our team is a strong supporter against child abuse and neglect, and we hope to contribute to and plan future charitable/awareness events towards this cause. 

If you are interested in contacting us (we love hearing feedback and questions!), please feel free to send us a message here:kats@jumpbuttonstudio.com or to my email: ssejanit@gmail.com (I will see them! :])

Deathclaw's Treasure Fallout Fan Art by anireal
Deathclaw's Treasure Fallout Fan Art



Made this to make the Fallout 4 wait easier. Here, Vault Boy and Dogmeat have come across a treasure trove of various Nuka Cola Quantums and Nuka Colas. In their excitement they don't see the destroyed protectrons a little further in, not wonder why the treausre is still intact until it is too late and the giant Deathclaw is upon them!

I feel like something like this always happens to me in Fallout games. I get enamored by something shiny and cool and the AH! CAZADORS?! HORDE OF SUPER MUTANTS?! DEATHCLAW NEST?!

The Hunt
I forgot to post this a while back! Sorry I've been stretched thin lately with work, personal projects, and life T.T

I really loved working on this piece and am thinking of purchasing a giclee print of it some time.

If you'd like to purchase this print, I have a store open here: society6.com/jessicafong
This is the only print there so far, but I plan to add more! :D
