My role in the project

My job at Red Magnet Studios is basically to do everything except programming. This means that I am responsible for everything you see in the game. This includes:

 

• Game design

• 2D Art

• Managing the project

• User Interface

• Promotion & Marketing

 

This was my first big project where i had to do almost everything! this means that i learned form every aspect in the process of making games, from creating a concept till the promotion of the game!





 

2D ART
For this game i went for the pixel art style so it could capture the look & feel of oldskool arcade games. I designed all the sprites and animations for the character, suits, weapons, enemies, level bosses and the universes!
