Drake Savage: Space Ninja was the first, last and only game from DigiPen’s Team Steambender!
Drake Savage: Space Ninja is a 2.5D shooter inspired by titles like Geometry Wars and Osmos and created in 3 months by new developers.
The most challenging part of this project was maintaining a coherent vision for the game and working effectively as a team.
The most rewarding parts of this project were learning hlsl, implementing a glow shader and writing the audio system. Oh yeah, particles – particles were a blast… This is the sprite we’re using for all particles (my cat, Cuddlepuff!)
As technical director I oversaw the codebase. I was directly responsible for the graphics and audio systems. I also worked on the weapon and enemy behavior… I pretty much touched everything! 😄
