I am a 28 year old Software Engineer with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and I love exploring new technology in the field while enjoying almost all areas of development.
I spend my free time either working on my own projects, or making/writing/recording my own music. The opportunities I get to learn something new is something I leap at.
Super Animals was a project that ran as a campaign by Pick n Pay and Brand Loyalty. It involved augmented reality card collecting as well as educational game snippets that taught people especially children about the various animals and their unique facts. The tech stack used here was Unity in C#, with Vuforia for augmented reality.
Emerji is a 2048 style game that can be downloaded on the Play Store. It was made by myself, an illustrator and an animator in our spare time. It is one of our many side projects. It was all done inside Unity and C# and uses SQLite as the backend.
2BOP Slang is a remake of the vintage classic arcarde snake game that we made in collaboration with the guys over at 2BOP Clothing in order to launch their new line of clothing in Amsterdam. The clothing came with QR codes that people could scan to take them to the play store and download the game.
Zuri's Lab is a scientific educational-based learning VR experience designed for mobile phones. It makes use of Google Cardboard and is available for download on the Play Store as well as the Apple App Store. The aim of the game is purely to invoke exploration, thought and promote STEM from within the current learning infrastructure in South Africa, specifically targetting the younger generation to get them to move into more science-centric backgrounds when heading through to high school and university.
Swipa is a quick game that involves swiping cards left or right to make decisions as you progress along a story line, while keeping track of your choices that influence what happens as you progress. I wrote the backend using Firebase to log relevant information, and in order for ease of use in the pipeline between designers and copywriters, I architected a Google Sheet using the API to pull down the story and all the possible choices and routes taken as well as the penalties they invoke. The data could be manipulated live by anyone without knowledge of the backend and still be able to balance, add or remove various parts of the game.
Elevated is an upcoming elevator style pixel art game, that is currently in prototype phase, but will be available on mobile as well as PC/Mac. The project is worked on purely in my spare time when not busy with other projects.
Yup, another cryptocurrency application. This one however was just for fun and to sate my urge to check multiple apps on my phone for the latest prices, with a fidget-type mechanic built in to ease nervousness in those dark times while HODLing.
