My contributions

  • Walkable spaces
  • Exposing XML
  • Created various events
  • ect. (it was long ago, I don't remember everything)

Experiences

This was the first time that we let Level Designers affect gameplay directly by exposing XML for them to edit. We worked closely with them to provide the functions they needed and help them when bugs arose.

 

This was also our first project in C++ which provided many challenges and lessions for us.
