My Role: Lead Programmer

As we where using Unreal Engine to develop FastFood, I did different tasks from a wide range of areas such as: character movement, gameplay programming, profiling and optimization. These are some of the tasks I accomplished:

  • Trained the team in the usage of Unreal Engine 4.
  • Developed a fast algorithm to find the nearest point on a spline to a point in world. That then was used by most gameplay elements in the game.
  • Optimized spline mesh rendering by using a custom Level Of Detail algorithm.
  • Generated performance statistics, analyzed them in order to detect performance bottlenecks and made the necessary changes to improve the frame rate of the game.
  • Worked on several gameplay related tasks:
    • Programmed the core movement along spline logic that was used by all game characters.
    • Developed minimap logic with a highlight system synchronised with the current objectives.
    • Integrated all cinematics and implemented the whole game flow.
    • Created checkpoints logic that allowed us to remember the “world state” at specific points of the level.
