Panzar

A multiplayer game with unique gameplay.

I was responsible for the software portion of the project from the start. I was also the team lead, software architecture, and database designer. As a developer, I worked with most parts of the project, from business servers and DB abstraction layers up to multiplayer gameplay, and game scenes.

Art by Numbers

A hyper casual simple game with complex implementation.

It was created as a hobby project with Unity and has multiplayer and meta servers implemented on ASP.NET. I was the only developer. I ported the game to iOS, macOS, Windows, UWP, and Android. It is published in Apple, Google, MS stores, and on Steam.

Total Lockdown

A AAA multiplayer project.

I led the software development from the start. I prepared a smooth development transition from CryEngine to Unreal Engine 4. I managed the teaching process and project management. As a developer, I worked a lot with network gameplay, game worlds, scenes, AI, UI, and plugins, as well as compilers for internal tools, code generation, and data marshaling.
