  • Use the special abilities of each type, like super jump, block pushing and smaller stature to solve the spatial puzzles.

University Projects

Isle of Ragnarok

2011
Pranee, Ben, Trevor, Boden, Anna

Anna: Programmer, Designer, Writer, Sound Designer, Level Designer, Technical Artists and Environmental Asset creation

Welcome to Ragnarok lying at the heart of Aya Sofya. It is a place of forgetting and solitude. It is where the gods go when they have no where else, when wold of men have forgotten them. A place where they can rest in stone until they are once more remembered and believed in. 

The Isle of Ragnarok was a 12 week project focused on creating an interactive environment, not a game, that conveyed this sense of the forgotten and lost. It was inspired heavily by the the 3D exploration games of the early 1990’s like Myst and Zork Nemisis, however the Isle of Ragnarok focuses on mood and open world exploration rather than on rails puzzle solving.  Isle of Ragnarok was created using Unity 3D.

A Stitch in Time

2011
Pranee, Ben, Trevor, Boden, Anna 
(Full credits below)

“A Stitch in Time” is a 2D post apocalyptic steam punk  game for the iPad. The game combines casual game play mechanics with narrative animation sequences.  The game plays on the visual real estate of the iPad to present a powerful and attractive artistic style, which is carried through all aspects of the game, creating a seamless gaming experience.

See right for the demo video of the game. I hope to have the final video as well as the PC version up soon. 

“A Stitch in Time” is powered by the iTorque game engine.

As part of my role as the game studio design tutor at RMIT, I have written number of from wo-to-go art & design modding tutorials for a number of popular modding game engines:

You can also download the NWN2 tutorials from the modding community site.
