FIFA Android and iOS

https://www.ea.com/games/fifa/fifa-mobile
FIFA Mobile Soccer is a fantasy sports app for mobile devices where users can create their ideal teams and compete with other players worldwide.

My responsibility was to use C++, C#, Java, Objective-C to architecturally design and build game mechanics for handheld devices, both smartphones and tablets.

Need For Speed

https://www.ea.com/games/need-for-speed/need-for-speed
Need for Speed, also known by its initials NFS, is a racing video game published by Electronic Arts (EA). The focus is on deep customization, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative that pulls players through the game.

My responsibility was to use C++ and C# to architecturally design and build the game mechanics using the Frostbite engine.

Porting Unturned to PS4 and Xbox One

Unturned is a game where keeping a few not-yet-turned zombies that way will be a challenge. Players can go in guns blazing and attract the attention of everything, living and dead.

My responsibility was to transfer mechanics and features from the PC version of Unturned to consoles while respecting framerate budgets and a controller input method, also integrating the multiplayer system into AWS.

AR Mirror

I led and supervised a team of three engineers to develop an application that used an Xbox Kinect and a big screen TV to "dress up" a person with virtual clothes using augmented reality.

This project was developed with Unity using C#.

Enter the Reveries

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyNsCdWDWxE
Enter the Reveries is a story and combat-based artistic adventure platform, hand-illustrated in various digital art styles by the artist Gary Adrian Randall.

Took over the project in a shambles state from a previous junior engineer and developed it to completion and launch.

Pixel Place

A Unity build multiplayer mobile application based around the concept of a pixelated canvas that anyone can paint on.
