Forge Wizard

My first 3D game, created as part of TAMK’s game academy program in spring 2017. Forge Wizard is a top-down 3D twin stick shooter, in which an apprentice wizard must regain control of his master’s home. Armed with only a few simple spells (game mechanics), the player has to run, dodge, dash, shoot, and collect his way through four wings of content, each with a thematic boss.

Created by myself and two programmers over a period of approximately 4 months, which included learning to model and work in Unity from nearly zero. All visual elements, from colors to models to animations to particles, as well as most of the sound design and implementation, are my work. I wanted this to be an expression that I can and will make it as an artist.

One of only two games ready to release by the course deadline, out of many teams. Released on and Gamejolt in 2017.
