Picture Setting

Picture Setting

This is a picture I took of some Inca ruins in Peru. I am currently using it as a basis for how I want various textures and features in the game worlds that I am building. How to make everything blend together well.

World Builder

World Builder

This is a world building project using the Unity game engine. Where I am designing a physical world from the ground up. I take various assets and combine them together to create a huge world for the player to explore throughout his journey. This is an experiment to see how far I can take the tools that I currently have available to myself.

Settled in an isolated valley, a village struggles to survive an onslaught of twisted spirits. Can you change the tide and help the village stand on its own two feet? We Who Linger is a single player wave-based combat game where you run, jump, and glide around a magical world collecting artifacts, retrieving memories, praying to shrines, and fighting hordes of evil spirits to ensure the safety of one village tucked in the ruins of a long forgotten past.
