About the Game:

Role: UI & Generalist Programmer
My primarily role was that of a UI programmer . I worked closely with UI artists and UI/UX designers to produce and polish in-game UI including the Main Menu, Pause Menu, Stage Select, Options, and Character Select. The UI controls were also implemented by me and supports both keyboard and gamepad support. All of the UI features were constructed using Unreal Engine's "widget editor" as well as their "blueprints" visual scripting system.
I would also fill in as a generalist to tackle other tasks such as keeping track of specific player metrics (distance traveled, items thrown, etc.) as well as importing new characters and making them selectable in game.
