Spirit is a 3D puzzle-platforming adventure developed for PC. In the game, you play as Spirit, a tiny, mischievous poltergeist that can possess objects to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles. Throughout the game, players take on the form of bouncing balls, marbles, and paper planes to navigate an abandoned attic and rescue friendly ghosts trapped by devious paranormal exterminators.
We completed the Spirit prototype in our own game engine built from scratch in C++ and OpenGL. Currently, we are redeveloping Spirit as a full game built in the Unity engine.
The Spirit prototype won Best Technical Innovation at the LevelUP Student Showcase in 2016. We went on to present Spirit to potential players at EGLX 2016, OCE Discovery 2016, and AMD’S VR Day 2016.
