During the spring break Unreal Engine hosted another game jam, I teamed up with 3D artist Lee Stockton and Jamie Dubuisson for this game jam. The theme was “Transformation” and ran from 10th May until the 15th May 2018
We split the job roles between us, I did the game and level design, Lee did the 3D models and Jamie created the Sci-Fi robot.

We decided on the concept of a side scroller puzzle game and we came up with the idea of a game that transformed through the ages of sci-fi. This would begin with old 1950's sci-fi and progress through to modern day utilising effects and overlays to depict the TV of that era as well as all the little mistakes often seen within them.
Instead of doing a generic sci-fi game we decided to design the game around been on an old 1950’s movie set and you take control of one of the actors following a script.
We did not manage to complete this theme but utilised another aspect of transformation and had it so the player could switch between a human and a robot to solve puzzles and achieve victory over the evil space wizard.
Harlan designs has been given a great opportunity to work with TwoSync stars Mat and Chris to produce them there very first game for their YouTube audience. Its still early in the planning but I can’t wait to see what we come up with!
