The Runes of Kalevala is a cooperative RPG/adventure game that uses gameplay to drive the narrative. You take on the roles of legendary heroes as you immerse yourself into the Finnish national epos Kalevala, experiencing the epic tale as if you had been there yourself.

The Runes of Kalevala features local co-op to allow players to go on quests and experience an adventure together. Unlike traditional co-operative RPG-type games however, which rely heavily on the players enjoying the same type of activities, The Runes of Kalevala will allow you to play together while playing differently.

Imagine if in The Lord of the Rings when Gandalf left the fellowship for errands of his own that his adventure and the fellowship’s would play out simultaneously and the effects of one party’s actions affected the other.

The game is made in Unity 5.3.

Zombie Crawler is a first person arcade game on PC that puts the player in the role of a zombie hungry for human flesh. Unfortunately, the zombie has lost the use of its legs, thus it has to crawl across the floor to reach the unlucky victim. The game is played by using a treadmill-like controller, on which the player drags herself forwards with her hands. The faster the player is on the treadmill, the faster the zombie will move forwards on the screen. The zombie loses stamina as it moves, on the way towards dinner, the player can catch and eat critters to gain more stamina. The player also has to overcome various obstacles that are blocking her path.

The game is developed in SFML and OpenGL.
