This package is fully customizable with its own Character Controller, being really easy to configure and fast to use. It has the possibility to choose between some already build-in Parkour Actions.

I developed several systems such as the IK System to position the limbs of the player in the according surfaces, Vaulting System to detect obstacles and surpass them, Predicted Jumping System that looks for targets to land and perform an autoajustable jump, and the Climbing System that allows the player to climb all type of surfaces through ledges.

About Me

Hi! I’m Èric, a videogame developer currently finishing my 4th year studies of Design and Development of Video Games Bachelor’s Degree of UPC in Barcelona.
As a kid I fell in love with the Saga of Kingdom Hearts and Metal Gear Solid. When I played those games I decided that I wanted to make videogames!

I’m focusing on the most technical part of the game development as gameplay programmer, allowing me to portray the ideas of the game to something that the player can experience and enjoy while playing.

I’m organized, hardworker and love solving the challenges appearing during the development, I can adapt really easily on any environment, having a huge communication with my teammates in the scrum group, and other specialitzation groups.

Skills

Programming

For the development of my videogames I’ve been coding mainly in C++ object-oriented programming, besides other languages like Lua, Python,  C# for Unity and later OpenGL for my own 3D Engine and other 3rd Party Libraries. I made use of tools like Visual Studio, Git/GitHub with a good knowledge on branches and branching policies, to ensure an optimal work while developing a game.

I’ve worked always as gameplay programmer in all my projects, what helped me on developing my programming skills to have my code clean and most readable as possible and optimized for the system being developed.

Quality Assurance

In all the projects I took part, always there were moments that when I was developing a new feature I had to make some sessions of bugfixing, to ensure the best possible quality. In my projects I applied the methodology of using Github Issues, to have a track of the current bugs and fix them later.

Solving Problems

During the development of any project, there were moments that we faced some difficulties. The experience I gathered while doing those games helped me a lot to over come them and have a quick understanding of those problems, until finally solving them with analytical perspectives and creative solutions.

Because I’m a commited person I always do my best to help the team not worry about the technical problems and solve them as a challenge for myself.
