Basketball League

A PC and Kinect game where the user answers a few cyber-security-related questions by dumping the ball in the right basket.

I implemented the throwing mechanics of the ball, the questions pooling from a custom-created API, and installed all the UI into Unity.

URL Punk

A PC and Kinect game that teaches the user to distinguish fake URLs from the real ones.

I was the developer who installed the UI and created the procedural mesh generation for the URLs, as well as the slicing mechanic and the scoring system with the code-based animation.

Additionally, I implemented the Kinect module, which ended up being a standalone module for later Kinect games.

The Archery

A VR game where the player shoots arrows at three vases answering cyber-security-related questions.

I implemented the VR mechanics for Oculus Quest, the pulling of the bow and responsive animation, and the vase breaking animation and logic.

Responsive UI for the Oculus interaction.

The Office

A VR cyber security game helps employees get the essential security practices to keep themselves and their companies' businesses safe by spotting the breaches inside the office.

I implemented the VR system for Vive and Oculus, the randomization of the items in the scene, and the level design. Additionally, I implemented the scriptable-object-based event system and scriptable-objects serializable variable system that ended up being used in the rest of the follow-up projects.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

A WebGL game where users answer 15 questions to get to the million.

I implemented the questions pooling system based on the genres the users chose. I also implemented the helping methods in the game, installed the UI inside of Unity, and created the animations and the localization system that ended up being applied to all old games and used in all new games.

Racing Platformer Game

A replica of the famous Fall Guys game, a free, cross-platform massively multiplayer party royale game.

I implemented AI with support for the rollback feature and desync. I also added support to authoritative player inputs to prevent cheating. I designed a few levels with their unique style, which required adding two more movement modules to the player and the AI (slippery movement and slippery standing). Finally, I implemented the base structure for server tick-based physics obstacles into the game to ensure that no data is needed from the server to the player yet stays in sync among all players.
