Projects

Below you can find projects I’ve been working on.

  • Wrath of Loki – adventure game in VR, released 1st September 2016 in Oculus Store.

I designed gameplay and backstory for this project. It’s an adventure hidden object game, where you play Thor who has to defeat raging Loki. You visit immersive 360 degrees locations in epic Asgaard, solve puzzles and mini games in order to win.

Short preview of the game can be found here. The review of the game is here (COGConnected), here (VRHeads) and here (HardcoreGamer).

The game was invited to Chinajoy 2016 conference in Shanghai and was selected to be shown at PAX West in Seattle and at Indie Zone on Tokyo Game Show 2016.

Wrath of Loki got Best VR Game and Most Innovative Game awards at Casual Connect conference in Tel Aviv in November 2016.

I’m currently (autumn 2017) working on the second part of ‘Wrath of Loki’, creating more content and puzzles!
