My work


My major responsibility was game design but in this project, I was also involved in art meetings to broaden my knowledge. 


I did the level between the other levels and it was my responsibility to seamlessly transition from the two environments. I liked the communication we had in the group and I think we succeeded in having an environment that was compliant throughout the experience.


I also did the final boss room. It was fun doing a smaller room with a focus on keeping the player interested.

Hack n' slash


Some of the challenges I faced was how to handle walls from an early stage in a top-down game. We had early meetings about this issue and I think we succeeded in tackling that problem from an early stage and making it easier for us in the long run. 


Balancing the enemies in the level was a challenging part because it was a hack N' slash game the enemies are quite frequent. 

If I could do something different it was making the enemies feel a bit more rhythmic, so the player never got bored and then you can twist the expectations in a fun way.
