About Me

I am a freshman Game Design major that is also heavily involved in music programs in and around the Bradley area as a bass guitarist. I am passionate about software development and math, and no matter what I get involved with in my future, I will bring passion projects of mine to life.

Ben's Bolt

Ben's Bolt

I worked as the designer and programmer of this infinite-runner I made in just a few short months where you play as a lightning bolt zipping downwards, trying to reach Benjamin Franklin's key during his famous lightning experiment.

Despite being new to programming this type of game along with the short deadline, it didn't stop me from trying to be as creative as I could. I wanted to make all of my backgrounds unique since I was working with an empty sky as my background. So, instead of making the backgrounds of my game mesh together naturally, I added a background transition of stormy clouds passing by that would play when the backgrounds switched. While a lot more work, it added some nice, fun visual variety to my game.

This is one of four pieces of background artwork I made in just a couple days for my game. Since I am no artist and was not fully acquainted with Adobe Illustrator at the time, I am happy with how they turned out, especially this one! It was fun experimenting with the sky at different times and with different colors.
