The players will compete against each other by, running, jumping and grabbing their way to victory. While dodging dangerous traps and objects along the way. Players will also be able to toss objects into the playing field through a physical dispenser.

The game is built in Unity.

Cryptogram

Cryptogram is a puzzle-game with a hectical pace, where you as a player will interact with a bookshelf that opens hidden doors. In the game you’ll play as a person stuck in a house of madness where each room is a puzzle, an homage to the trope of hidden doors behind bookshelves.

With the help of a journal you’ll receive hints of which books to pull on the bookshelf to open the hidden door in each of the rooms. By observing the rooms and looking up the journals chapter which best describes the environment you’re in, you’ll find clues for each solution, clues hinting at titles and content of the books.

While all this is going on you’re also being chased by a horrible creature, giving the each puzzle a time-limit.

Adventures in Space and Slime is an open world, 3d platformer that engages players through exploration and creative puzzle solving.

You play as a trio of slimes who have suffered a teleporter accident and have been stranded in a perilous alien world.

Using combinations of each of the three characters’ special abilities and attributes, you must find and collect the scattered remains of your teleporter in your quest to return home!

The player overcomes challenges in the game world by swapping out which of the three characters they currently control, and recalling the others to the character currently being controlled, in order to make use of each of the slimes’ special abilities.

The game is created in Unity 5.4.3, coded in MSVS13, with assets created in Maya and 3DSMax.
