My Contributions
As a Gameplay Programmer on the team, I was responsible for developing key game features, working with game designers and bringing artist's visions to life!

During my time working on game I worked on implementing Finite-State machine for the combat AI. With so many items being possible to have in the combat sequences, called Strifes, if was vital to having a system for easily adding new interactions. I developed a robust method of implementing new combos. Utilizing Unity's Scriptable Objects and custom editors I created a simple and sleek way to extend the functionality of the battle system. Other than just the combinations the battle sequences also includes audio, animations and playing cutscenes before and after the fight.

Along side my work on the Strifes I was responsible for implementing item interactions with the world, laying out scenes for play navigation, implementing player progression, a few other minor puzzles and bug fixes through the code base.
