FPS Game: Sc-fi game I created with a team of four students. I was the level designer in the group. This game is about a virus outbreak in a computer system where you must kill the virus’s and save the AI in the game. Once you complete the task then you fight the boss and win the game. It has elevators, teleporters, stairs, jump pads, ammo, armor, health, and different types of AI.
