Project: Walking Puzzle Game(VR)

This game was made in two days due to my device dying. Our task was to create three simple puzzles and make a themed game out of it. The video above shows a quick run through and a demonstration in VR.
This was one of the first projects I completed in unity.  
Project: C++ Pictionary / Map Editor
This map editor/ tool was made entirely in C++, using visual studio and the sfml libraries. This was my first time working with C++. Within this project we learned how to save and load to a text file and more. 
First time using c++ 
Project: Pounce hug - Game Jam
This game was made in 48 hours for the 2019 global game jam. The theme was "Home" so our team decided to make a game where you go around and hug people until they join your army. Then its a matter of hugging the entire world!! >:D
