The Cathartic Escape

Game design

As part of my master's thesis we developed a hybrid game concept that works on both screen and in virtual reality, while communicating the same gameplay principle. I focused my key research also on the evaluation and application of a low-cost motion capture system for efficient in-game animation, virtual hand grips and full-body awareness in first-person games.

FPS animations

Animation

Some of the first-person shooter keyframe animations I created in 2015. I worked with custom rigs and the Character Animation Toolkit in 3ds Max to explore different approaches.

Flexible therapy game software framework

Software engineering

The aim of my bachelor's thesis was to simplify the development process of therapeutic games by developing a software framework to unify tracking data of skeletal motion features by external sensors through abstraction. Along with the software framework, a game design cycle is proposed. In this development cycle, a target therapy is selected and interviews with therapy experts are conducted to determine desired movements and expected clinical outcomes.

Real-time virtual robot world

Software engineering

During my bachelor's studies I worked on a project that visualizes robot movements in a modelled terrain. The data needed for this simulation is generated by a Microsoft Kinect camera and contains position values of the robots and a point cloud of the modelled terrain. To support the hypothesis that game engines can also be used for scientific purposes, this system is to be extended by an interactive game engine.

Wolf bindet Bären auf

Animation

The title is a german idiom for «Wolf pulls somebody's leg».
For this short film project of a friend of mine I animated a talking CGI wolf. The task was to create a short adaptation of the story of Red Riding Hood from the brothers Grimm.
