Drawn Alive is a 2 dimensional platform game aimed at children aged 6 – 14 years, which I undertook for one of my high school qualifications in ICT. In this project, I wasnt only in charge of programming, but I also designed and created the majority of the sprites, and designed the levels myself.
The game was made in Game Maker 8.1, and although being initially limited with the tools I could use, I found that the programming language included in the software offered me greater freedom to make my game unique and interesting for the target audience. I enjoyed the project, and learnt not only about programming techniques, but also about concepts of game designing.
I’m a software developer and recent graduate from the University of Hull. I’m fascinated by machine learning, artificial intelligence & procedural generation, and love sinking into exciting projects such as games, simulations & websites!
