Some of my past work
Below are case studies highlighting some of the projects I've worked on both independently and for clients. More in-depth details about all my recent projects can be found in the portfolio section.
I worked with Mudvark games on their recent title Water Works. I undertook all programming tasks, working alongside their in-house artists and designers. The game was built in Unity3D and is aimed at 12-14 years old kids, designed to enrich an educational program teaching Earth Sciences.
The game is fundamentally a real time strategy; players must tie up the water system to their town, ensuring water is cleaned and dirty water disposed of efficiently in order to keep the towns inhabitants happy. The title was developed for both Android tablets and iPad, to be launched within schools in the coming months.
The REALSafe application I developed for REALRIDER is a GPS motorbike tracking tool which will detect if a rider crashes their bike. The app is tied directly into the UK ambulance services and immediately notifies emergency services of the rider’s location upon detecting a crash. Users can additionally use the app to share their favourite routes and notify the community of dangerous roads, potholes and hazards.
The application upon release was featured on BBC Click. Licences for the app have since gone on to be bought in bulk by manufacturers including BMW in order to be provided on mass with all their UK bike sales.
The Ories: Super Space Monsters is the most recent title I worked on independently. It is a freemium game, produced in Unity 3D. I undertook all the programming, working alongside local freelance artist Mike Kirby.
Outside of core gameplay, the game also features Game Centre integration, Flurry Analytics, a custom back-end server setup to allow for control of item pricing without the need for submission of an update, Playhaven advertising, social sharing via Facebook and Twitter, as well as turn-based multiplayer. The game was additionally localised into Simplified Chinese, Japanese, French and Spanish.
To date the game has over 2,500,000 registered sessions, was featured on the main banner of of the Apple App Store upon launch and maintains a consistent 4.5/5 user rating in the majority of territories.
