Lucid is a first-person dream simulator, made with 3 other students for an academic game project. The player must navigate through the endless halls of their dream state to find a way out of the maze. As they encounter different artifacts, you must steer clear of any distractions that may cause their journey to come to an end.
After being selected to assist in an academic project through one of my friends, I took on the role as the team’s main programmer and assistant level designer. While I focused on game mechanics and asset implementation, I also assisted in writing the story, designing the level, and recorded voice lines for various characters in the game.
- Created a UI system to display text interactions for obtaining items and opening doors as well as having a space for inventory management.
- Camera and character movement rig for smooth interactive game play.
- Displayed triggers that are linked to custom sound effects to be played that is a unique addition to the game’s story.
- Scripted in-game animations and death triggers for a more intense experience.
- Helped conceptualize and draw out a maze-like level layout for the player to take place in.
- Applied textures, models, and other art assets into the level where they seem fit to be in.
