Quick Horror: A short but challenging survival horror game with light roguelike elements

After struggling with my adventure game for months, I’ve decided to work on some smaller games for a little. This little ‘survival horror’ game started out as a 24hr challenge became so much more. I’ve already plugged in three weeks into this project.

The game should be released by the end of the month

Quick Horror (working title) is a small but difficult adventure game where you must escape to the 8th floor while evading and battling an aggressive monster. You can counter the monster’s randomized attacks with daggers but they are extremely scarce and have limit on how many can be carried at once. Knowing when to flee and when to fight is crucial in Quick Horror.

This game also has a few roguelike elements like randomly generated rooms , making each play-though a little different.

Project Night Prototype Footage

So much work yet so much more to do.

Project night is an adventure game I’ve been working on and off for the last four months.I am creating the game with Unity using C# and Mono. All models where made in Blender. Music was made in ThumbJam and Audacity. It still has a way to go. Still has some glitches in the AI.

I have set up an official blog for the game: https://projectnightgame.wordpress.com. That’s a WIP as well.

Project Night: Monster Concept Art

Concept art of the monsters in my adventure game. The theme of the monsters is eyeballs. The theme of the environment is teeth. I painted these in Photoshop CC.

The first monster character is the Brute: a buff but slow monster that hunts you during the day, and the Chaser: A nimble fast monster that hunts you down at night.

I’ve already have made the 3d models and are now in the game!  I will upload them to sketchfab soon as well as some in game footage of the prototype.

Some more concept art for my Project Night project. I was thinking of a waterfall /oasis like area in the mountains of the desert. I haven thought of what events would happen at the waterfall yet.

Wall and prop models for Project Night

Both are WIP, the textures on the pots and rocks might changes. Including the floor/ceiling models (not shown) I’ve spent over 20 hrs on the models so far. I was hoping to knock out a level in a week but getting a new job and doing freelance work, my time is spent.

Project Night: Ruins Area Concept Art

ruins-concept-sheet3

I am working on my second 3d game which temporary has the name ‘Project Night’. I plan on making a prototype that can be showcase in my portfolio alongside Alptraum. This has been a dream project that I’ve wanted to do for years, a first person game focused more on exploration and evasion then combat. It will have both ‘set’ and randomized areas, the prototype will probably only have one or two areas to explore, but I plan to continually work on it after the prototype is finished. The proto will have a ruins area and possibly  desert and underground mining areas.  It will be made in Unity and programmed in C#.

Alptraum won a prize at the “2015 Indie Game Maker Contest”

happy monster alptraum

Last month my game Alptraum won a prize at the ‘2015 Indie Game Making Contest’ (Humble Bundle and Degica Inc (Game Dev Fort)

Alptraum won “Best game made with GameGuru” http://contest.gamedevfort.com/page/winners

I am surprised and very honored to win this prize,  this was my first finished 3d game. I made most of the assets and learned scripting in Lua, designing the levels, even writing the soundtrack to the game.. in three weeks.

Modeling, rigging, and importing a 3d game character into a 3d game for the first time was a challenging and rewarding part of the project.I was determined to finish this game, staying up to 3-4 am almost every night until the game was done.

At first the game play was going to be ‘Myst with a monster’, but due to time restraints the game play became more like an ‘arcade Slenderman.

You can download the game at:
http://gamejolt.com/games/alptraum-nightmare/88796#!

Alptraum is about 20-40 minutes long and completely free with no DLCs and IAPs! Windows 7-10 and a decent video card is required for best performance.

Special thanks to my family for their support, my friends JD and Dan for testing the game, Degica and Humble Bundle for sponsoring this annual contest, and The Game Creators for making the GameGuru engine.
