RESPONSIBILITIES

My primary responsibility was the design and creation of the dungeon level using modular rooms and assests. I was also responisble for implementing the levels interactive features, events and visual languange communicating the digital fakery of the environment. I found it extremely fun to blend the aged aesthetic of the dungeon with the clean and emissive elements I used to represent the simulation. However, as the game had a very tight production timeline, with almost all developemnt taking place in two weeks, I encountered issues where the level needed to be made longer as more dialogue was completed so that it had time to be spoken. I achieved this by effectively turning the first section of the level into a maze, which I found to be a very fun challenge.
