Games are my passion

Programming my hobby

Hi there! I'm Kevin

I am a Software engineer with strong skills in C++ and C# and a bachelor's degree in computer science. I worked as Unity Developer on a well received touristic gaming app (schaz). I enjoy creating and working on systems, which help and are used by the team.

I really love games and programming, and as game development pose interesting challenges, I can't imagine anything more fascinating than developing games!




Showcase


Phaseshifter

Gamdevweek Trier 2019/2


A rythm based bullet hell game, made with a custom C++ engine made by another team member in ~5 days. I implemented the ingame HUD including the beat indicator and synchronized the beats with the music. I was also responsible for the player enemy interaction and implemented the player attacks using the ECS system of the engine. I also did half of the level design.



The odd and extraordinary story of a drunken elephant owning and breaking a china shop - and his assistant

Global Game Jam 2020


You are the assistant of an elephant, that owns a china shop. Unfortunately your elephantous employer had a boozy evening with his friends again and now he is rampaging in his own china shop. Like every time it's up to you to use your Reparinator 2000 to repair all the broken porcelain before the shop opens in the morning.



Bunny Plague

Ludum Dare 46


You love your garden and especially your giant award winning carrot. Nearby rabbits found out about your carrot and they are hungry, and so are you. Keep your carrot alive by throwing your self grown turnips at those bunnies, while eating a turnip or two to keep yourself alive as well.
