Slurf - A VR Game

PC/Oculus Rift DK2 - Unity (C#)

2015

A project made in two days for an in-house game jam at Codeglue B.V., when I worked there as an intern.

The game jam's theme was "Dream" and the games were required to make use of VR technology (i.e. the Oculus Rift DK2).

In this whimsical game, the player rummages through a heap of colorful objects with an elephant's trunk, aiming to find a particular item (requested by another player) from the heap.

A PlayStation Vita port of Arkanoid, developed in nine weeks, in a basic 3D engine written from scratch.

Woozy Waiter

PC - Unity (C#)

2015

A game that experiments with multiple input devices, including a Sphero as well as a Tobii EyeX eye tracker.

It is a quirky game where the player is a tipsy waiter in a restaurant, and their objective is to serve food to the customers before time runs out. The Sphero is used to balance food on the tray as well as move around the restaurant, and the EyeX tracks the eye movement of the player, who needs to look at each table specifically to see how much time is left.
