RELEASED WORK

Knightfall AR

Another game that was developed during my time at Milkroom, this game placed bodies evidence and items in the AR environment that led you to finding out who the criminal was. Your job was to collect evidence and charge the perpetrator. Most of my work on this game was related to Asset organization, creation, texturing and concepting. I helped a little bit with the UI side and other organization as well.

Truck Night in America AR

A game that I worked on Asset texturing and management for CrossTrainer Mixed Reality LLC. I worked heavily on making sure that the truck decals matched with the truck UV maps and that they weren't distorted or looked improper on the truck exterior. I also contributed to decal designs for the trucks and edits on designs that needed to be edited to fit the trucks. The game features different truck parts that you design your truck with and then you compete with other designers to see who can be voted the top truck design during design competitions.

A+E Crime Scene AR

Working under Milkroom Entertainment I contributed to the release of Knightfall AR. A simple AR tower defense game that has you fighting off waves of enemies while upgrading and rebuilding your fortress. Most of my work in this game was based around the UI and gameflow elements. As well as historical research on events locations and items used during the time period.
