FishGibble
You are a fish, in a tank (maybe the ocean later), you swim, you flick stuff, you pickup stuff, you avoid getting eaten, you progress and hopefully have fun along the way.

Heroes Foe
You can choose between a wizard or a warrior, you run around pickup stuff, fight dudes and progress through various stages of the world, first a platformer, jump and time your moves, get a key, then fight your way through some buildings, open a draw bridge and then fight your way through some more dudes,, Most of this Game needs a revamp.
Steam - Project will be revamped for Multiplayer including all Characters and the entire World.

Projects

UE4 Landscape
Trees and Grass were created in SpeedTree for UE4
This is not a game, just a tech demo, you drive around and look at the trees and stuff...yawn

The HUD, character model and Gun in this demo is part of the default UDK setup, and was not created by me.

Trees and Grass were created in Speedtree, and then exported and refined in Max using custom scripts.

  • All of your image links don't seem to work. (I get an error 403 when I try to visit them directly, so it seems it's trying to link images in a private folder or something.)

    What's the aim of your portfolio? Are you trying to find work in any particular position? Do you want to make your own games? You seem to dabble in a bit of everything, and your website seems to have a mix of stronger and weaker work. The SpeedTree stuff came out really well.

    Thank you for the kind words, and informing me about the links. I have fixed it..Silly links...
    The aim of my portfolio is to put myself out there, I am definitely interested in part-time Game Development work.
    But for the next few months, I will be busy rewriting FishGibble for Steam, and at the same time, from September the AnimSchool program.

    Yeah I started just by reading tons of books, and then doing courses, part of the course was mathematics, learning to design and implement a full fledged game engine in C++, which I believe is now called Carbon, and then learned as much as I could about the Art, Modelling, Texturing and Animation pipeline, and then just progressed to using professional game engines, like Unity, UDK CryEngine3 and finally Unreal Engine 4. I find C++ with Epic's custom compiler directive like tags to expose and invoke Blueprint functions very natural and easy for rapid prototyping, development and debugging.

  • FishGibble is alive and well. Took a 2 year break, to start, and graduate from the 3D Character Program at www.animschool.com, that was tough as nails, but really awesome.

    Some updates on the new FishGibble.

    I know it's not a game anybody is excited about, but it is fun to make, and it's mine. And I am sharing the process with anyone who is interested. Have an awesome one!
