Duality

CMPUT 250 Concept placement holder

Duality is a Neverwinter Nights mod created by Leonid Productions for CMPUT 250.

It is a psychological themed puzzle game in which a young woman must come to terms with herself in order to escape the limbo-like state of her mind by overcoming challenges in the presence of her shadow, a hostile image of the character herself.

The limbo-like environment representing her mental state serves as the setting for the game and is composed of several mirrored rooms containing creative and logical puzzles bearing themes of duality. These mirrors represent self-reflection and provide passages to a mirror image of each room into which the character must venture in order to solve part of each puzzle.

Along the way, the character uncovers fragments of her past in the rooms, which illustrate the events of her life leading up to the game, the origins of her mental state, and her journey towards rediscovering herself.
The game was nominated for three categories in the BioWare-sponsored awards ceremony, and won both  “Excellence in Art and Design” and “Audio Achievement” awards.

The Day I Died

TheDayIDied

The Day I Died is an extensive mod of Neverwinter Nights produced for CMPUT 250, a game development course offered at the University of Alberta.
For this project, we transformed Neverwinter Nights into a stealth-action game. You, Clyde Durden, must escape from purgatory – a large, oppressively gray office building full of skeletons in suits – using your ability to separate your soul from your body.
The game was nominated for all categories in the BioWare-sponsored awards ceremony, and it won the “Technical Achievement” and “Game of the Year” awards.

Elliot acted as lead designer, programmer, and sound designer.
Braedy and Thomas did level designing and programming
Isaac was the team artist and Matthew found and recorded the voice actors.

Gravity Garden

GravityGardenGravity Garden is a puzzle game in which you, a cosmonaut, are tasked with moving a plant from room to room — a plant so fragile that merely touching it would kill it. Lacking the proper equipment to do so, you instead opt to repeatedly change the entire station’s gravity to accomplish your task. Meanwhile, the annoying American from the space station next door taunts you.

It was featured on JayIsGames, a popular casual gaming site, and a copy was also featured in Ukranian computer magazine Domashny PK.

Elliot was the sole programmer on this project. He built its engine in C++ using SDL as a media library. Besides programming, this project also required a large amount of level design and some writing, which he worked on with a partner.
