Mod – Alicia, a companion NPC (December 2016)

My very first mod for ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition’ brings a new character to serve as the Dragonborn’s companion. This mod was created using Bethesda’s Creation Kit for ‘Skyrim’ and was created as a way of me learning how to create companion characters for the game. This mod supports all versions of the Special Edition release of ‘Skyrim’.

Physical Game Prototypes – “Scape Wars” and “Deity TCG” (October 2016 – December 2016)

During the first half of my second year of University, I worked alongside four other students to create physical prototypes for two different game ideas. As a group, we created a grid-based strategy board game which was titled “Scape Wars” and a trading card game titled “Deity”. My group developed the ideas and pieces needed to make the games playable and we invited a wide variety of different people from various gaming backgrounds (computer games, board games and tabletop role-playing) to play test our games and provide feedback to tell us how the games performed from the point of view of the player. We made improvements to our designs following feedback from our play testers.

NOTE: No “Deity” images are present as I’ve yet to get permission to use the card designs from the original author.


Tank Game (November 2015 – April 2016)

This Tank game was created using C++ Programming and the OpenGL graphics library as part of my first year of studying Computer Games Development at University. Unfortunately I cannot provide a playable demo but I do have code snippets from this project as well as a video of the game in action
