Project: Alien Intrusion


Among many other projects I've worked on with ASCII Media, I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to head up a short-term project called Alien Intrusion. As the lead on the project, I was responsible for guiding many aspects of the game's 25-day development.

Highlights of my work include:

    • Personally handling all the programming; from gameplay to UI to shaders and effects.
    • While I did not come up with the original design for the game, the core gameplay elements, game-flow, and balancing were my responsibility.
    • I formed the visual style of the game and directed an art team that fluctuated between 2 and 4 members.
    • I created many of the art assets myself during moments when I needed breaks to plan out upcoming code tasks.
    • I directed the musician and sound designer, along with creating many of the sound clips myself.
