Postmortem: Deception Royale

Project Insights

This is a blog post supplementing the project Deception Royale showcased as part of my portfolio. If you wanted to instead look at the project itself, you can find that here.

Background

My university was holding a game jam and me being part of the Game Studies and Engineering Masters program, had to participate in it. I decided to pair up with a friend of mine and as we wanted to expand towards new kinds of games, we knew before the jam started that we would either be making a 3D game or an online multiplayer game of sorts.

Postmortem: Robo Chase

Project Insights

This is a blog post supplementing the project Robo Chase showcased as part of my portfolio. If you wanted to instead look at the project itself, you can find that here.

Background

I had just moved to Austria a few weeks ago, I knew no one and barely spoke the language. However I made a friend quite early on and we decided that what better way to get to know each other than to work on a game together! We picked that game jam in particular as it fell on the only free weekend we had before the game jam held at our university. We were already planning to participate in the university’s game jam as a team so we wanted to get some experience working together beforehand.

My Portfolio and How its structured

About the Website

Hello everyone! This is the first post on my blog, here at my own website. It’s exciting, to be honest! I never thought a few years ago that I would have a blog and would want to write posts for it. All that being said, I welcome you, reader, to my corner of the internet.

I made this post to explain my portfolio is structured. The main purpose of this website is to showcase my work, however, I also wanted to provide my thoughts regarding the projects I’ve worked on. Hence, every project is supplemented with a blog post, going into detail about the design choices regarding said project and giving a bit more insight into my experience working on it.

I want to keep the actual project pages short and to the point and separate the rambling into another post. Other than that, every project has at least a few screenshots or a video showcasing how it works so the visitors do not have to download it themselves to get a feel for it.

I wanted to make the portfolio easy to access and read through, but at the same time I wanted my thoughts to be out there for people to read as well. I think the model explained above achieves that well. However, if you think that the website could be improved, if you want to report an error, or if you just want to get in touch with me, you can do so via the contact page.

Thank you for reading this post and I hope you enjoy your stay here.
