Featured Projects

DaVinci's Workshop

A VR escape room experience

As part of the educational program, Da Vinci's Workshop is a collaboration project between NHTV University of Applied Sciences and Ubisoft for in-house experimentation with Virtual Reality, in the form of an escape room using the Assassin’s Creed IP.

The Roost

A Horror Shooter

Set in the future, you play as a smart and cocky trader.
With only her ship’s AI for company, she has landed in an empty colony where the warp hole generator (her route home) is broken. But the colony is inhabited by creatures from another dimension that are roosting in the buildings.

Explore, scavenge, fight, survive, and escape…

Because every night brings more of "The Roost".

Unreal Tournament Map

Solo Level Design Project

Researching existing Unreal Tournament maps and applying my findings to create my own "fun" and "balanced" map.

Project Abby

Narrative driven exploration

The player is being interrogated about an unknown crime. They have to find out about the player character’s identity as well as the crime committed. This is done by visiting memory flashbacks to interact with their environment in an effort to acquire information to answer the interrogator's questions.
