In 2006 I started to study Media Computer Sciences to learn more about the entire topic of Computer Graphics. Since then I have been working on various professional and student projects in that subject.
I’m happy to reveal the game that I’ve been working on the last years. I worked on it as Technical Artist and developed a procedural toolset for UE4 which was used throughout the entire project. It allowed artists to non-destructively design levels and decorate environments until the very end.
Just finished the work on DEKK, our TOXIKK reinterpretation of the all time classic UnrealTournament Deck16.
Of course we haven’t changed the beyond all doubt layout of Epicgames much.
I was responsible for creating the new scifi assets and decorating the level to become a “EDEN Core research facility”. But beside that I developed a new reflectionsystem for the UDK wich supports local parallax corrected cubemap reflections in combination with ScreenSpaceReflections for translucent materials. The system also supports Material roughness to achieve the PhysicallyBasedRendering look of modern game engines.
We revealed our back-to-the-roots Arena-FPS TOXIKK and I’m finally able to show you on what I’m currently working. TOXIKK.com
Right now I’m the Technical Director of TOXIKK and responsible for developing all kinds of gameplay features and tools. Additionally I have been working on all kinds of effects for the game and was responsible for the design of the below shown environment.
The DDR-Museum Berlin has a new Trabi Driving Simulator. It allows you to drive in a real Trabant 601 through an common east-berlin prefabricated residential area called “Plattenbau-Siedlung”.
Markus Braun from Stromkreisparadies transformed the Trabi into a gamecontroller. So you are able to use the steeringwheel, pedals and the real keys to start/stop the 25hp two-stroke engine. Even the tachometer is working.
I was responsible for the design and development of the entire game by using the UnrealDevelopmentKit.
Read the full article about the Trabi-Simulator in the BZ-Berlin magazine.
SkiRanger got published in the printed version of the german Making Games Magazine 04/2013. And I’m proudly presenting you the PDF (unfortunately only in german). Just click below to read the full article.
Bruce Willis is reading the newspapers in my kitchen and he is complaining about missing the 20% discount of a german DIY-store.
This VFX shot was created during my studies at the HTW-Dresden and we have used his official German voice from several TV spots. I finished the project together with Henry Bartho in February 2010.
During my studies I have developed various minigames. Two of them are visually good enough to share with you ;). The first one is a simple 2D Maze game where you get in control of a golden bug and have to find the magic portal to the next level. The second one is a two player 3D Checkers game in an American-Football setting.
