Design & Production:

Flare was the first game project I worked on in a team setting at NHTV Breda University, and without much training I was already tasked with being one of two designers as well as team lead and producer for our team.

Due to this being our first project, we still had a lot of lessons to learn regarding scope, and this resulted in me having to cut most of our original concept throughout development. In the end, we did manage to deliver a working prototype of the core gameloop, involving planet exploration, drilling resources, and selling them in the marketplace to buy upgrades.

Tasks included:

  • Initial concepting & systems design

  • Narrative design

  • Level Design / whiteboxing / set dressing of the spaceship

  • Designing and implementing all of the game's UI and menus 

  • Implementation of various features and animations in Unity C#

  • World design and gameplay balancing with procedural tools made by our programmers
