Wwise Adventure Game (University Module)
Role: Programming, Audio Implementation (Wwise)
For a university module, we had to work with the Wwise Adventure Game and put our own spin on it as well.For my implementation, I did things like time of day-relative ambience, a TV that plays audio when smacked and a celestial moon that appears at night and occasionally screams.

Lys Nightmare Combat Practice

Originated from the foundations of my university project Lys' Nightmare, I wanted to take what I had learned/developed and improve it into something more refined and fresh.With map in hand, sneak around a little manor and defeat the area boss.
Friend Collector - 32bit Game Jam
Role: Game Design, Lead Artist, Sound Designer, Composer, Co-Programmer
Game Design was done in collaboration with Greg Sutton.We wanted to create a fishing game with a twist by incorporating rhythm game elements. The player would perform the rhythm game whilst maintaining their balance via holding the triggers. Missed notes would punish the player by throwing them off-balance, a distraction from the rhythm game that challenges the player to maintain focus.The gameplay loops consists of performing the rhythm game well to increase your fish's value, purchasing time extensions and using consumables to alter the odds of catching your desired fish. The overall goal is to fill out your fishing log before the time runs out.Development took place over 2 weeks. A total of 3 3D models, 6 Music Tracks were developed alongside all of the spritework, key art and programming assistance.The game placed a #7 Overall Rating and #1 Sound Rating out of over 120 submissions.
Lys' Nightmare - Academic Project
Role: Solo Developer (excluding 3D building assets)
Developed during my final year at Bath Spa University. The goal was to develop a game that tied with my artist identity, something to be connected to my album LEXI'S UNIVERSE.The gameplay is reminiscent of Dark Souls, requiring the player to explore a gothic town and think tactically about their next move to avoid death. Exploration is key and rewarded, granting shortcuts like unlockable doors and elevators.Programming was done with PlayMaker's Visual Scripting tool in Unity while 3D models and animations were done in Blender.
Project: Sporox - Funded Incubator Project (Tranzfuser 2022)
Role: Composer, Audio Implementation Assistance (Wwise), NPC Designer, Level Designer
Developed as part of Creature Friends, a team of 5 university graduates.Initially conceived during a university module as a small prototype, it was applied and accepted onto the Tranzfuser 2022 programme.The game was developed over 3 months with the general level being developed in the first 2 months while characters and music were completed in the final month leading up to the game's showcase.The game was showcased at EGX London in September of 2022. Whilst we faced some UX issues, overall response was positive toward the game's concept, its quirky characters, unique visual style and audio.
Tracks and songs I have written and produced. florelle songs were written in collaboration with Lumin and vera, etc. while I mixed and mastered the songs myself. I work primarily in Studio One but am capable of utilising other DAWs and software such as Ableton, Reaper and an assortment of music trackers like MilkyTracker and FamiTracker.
I will produce music to fit your digital fantasy hellscape!!
