TERM1NAL is a third-person Gear VR game where the player controls two characters; an android and a robot dog. The game is a healthy mix of stealth, mini-game puzzles, exploration and narrative divided over 12 missions in about 2 hours of gameplay.
PLATFORM: GEAR VR (SAMSUNG S6, S7 and S8)
RELEASE DATE: MAY 2017
MY ROLE: GAME DESIGNER
TERM1NAL is the first, and only, game I helped develop in Unity during my professional career. It still taught me a lot about the engine and just how much you can get done together with a team of highly skilled programmers.
In the half year I worked on the project, I ended up developing and iterating on more than half of the game’s campaign, including mini-game content, level design and the narrative.
I learned a lot about optimization during the development of the project. Not only was it a game intended to ship on mobile hardware, it was a VR game as well. All disciplines worked together to push the hardware to its limits as we got closer to release.
