Experience

  • Dirty Mind (Development)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpiG96PQL7Q

    This is a game created for Global Game Jam 2015.

    The main character is your brain! You have to decide what to do by searching for words and creating a simple phrase which is the thing to do next. According to this action, points of happiness, food, energy, and time are changed. Some of those actions could be a little bit weird, and some memes will appear according to what happened. The objective is to keep the mind as happy and healthy as possible.

    Within this game, I've created my own small game engine using only JavaScript and no other library where I implemented simpler collision, control, and engine update characteristics.

  • Geo Memo (Development)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nusTmfqXhY4

    An exploration game that shows two touristic places in Bolivia: Uyuni's Salar and Cochabamba City.

    This game was awarded with a prize from the US's embassy in Bolivia through its cultural department. It also has given a lot of interest to the local press.

    During development, I implemented my own camera smoothing control and recreated a huge part of Bolivia using Google maps through terrain-based tools of Unity3D.

  • Dawn of Robots (Development)
