Art-if-Act was my submission for the Global Game Jam 2016. It is a mobile virtual reality game in which the player searches for hidden artifacts using sound and visuals. The game uses a novel pedometer approach to walking in virtual environments.
This is one of my old projects which I am now picking off its dusty shelf in order to remake it from a PC to an Android game. I began working on it like 7 years ago. It is a platformer in which you play as the great magician. The game consist of a bunch of levels (with a pretty intense graphical style) and you must use the magicians magical powers to solve the puzzles on these levels. These powers include drawing platforms.
Loot of the Dead
This started out as a school project which I did with two friends. Now they are occupied with other things, but I'm looking into continuing the project. It is a rogue like Android game in which you play short instances of zombie survival in post apocalyptic worlds. Not only the world, but character meetings and story will be generated. I'm currently trying out a new game engine which will allow for quicker but more limited development.
This is yet another of my old PC projects which I am now remaking for the Android OS. It's a SHUMP which used to offer coop hotseat gameplay. One player would control a ship using keyboard only and the other would use keyboard and mouse. For the smartphone context I'm experimenting with having more brief touch interaction and automatic firing.
Slice and Dice
A procedurally generated dungeon crawler for smartphone with a stong theme of dice. All items and character traits are represented by virtual dice.
Inspired from the game Super Solid which I made together with some friends for the RSM gamejam 2014 I decided to make a smartphone game. It will feature fast-phased, generated action and quick game sessions.
Stick Warrior ES
Stick Warrior ES is the sequel to my PC game Stick Warrior. Because most of my other projects have either been to big or developed on platforms which are currently not that interesting to me I have decided to start on a smaller Android game. It is pretty much just a simple platformer, but instead of using virtual buttons I want to explore what a suitable platformer control implementation might look like on a touch device. I will no attempt to make a simplified platformer to fit the touch input but instead try to find how touch can be used in a classical platformer.
TRIBE Play it! is a simulation game built to inspire energy efficient behaviour.
Battle of Cheese
A simple old style screensaver featuring small figures fighting each other. There are two teams, the greens and the reds each using their own unique arsenal to take the other team down.
Game developed for the GGJ 2013 together with two friends.
A megaman clone inspired by the reboot of the NES style remakes Megaman 9 and 10. Named after a good friend who enjoyed it. : )
Mr. One Hand Typer
Mr. One Hand Typer was made for a competition in which you were supposed to create a small puzzle game in a month or something. I made a typing game, but instead of training the player in fast typing it's more of just as mess. You type sentences which appear to the left while stearing a guy with the mouse to the right. When a correct letter is typed it will appear at random spot in the top and fall down. The guy has to collect it to score points. You must also be on the lookout for powerups and dangers which might spawn at any time.
Futuristic, sidescrolling boss rush game with RPG elements. Created during the Global Game Jam 2012.
An artistic game about creation, destruction and trans-dimensional gates. It was created during the Global Game Jam 2011 with my pals Todilo, tobijoh, MagaTome and Mandis.
Stick Warrior 2
I have made a few attempts at making a sequel to one of my finished games, Stick Warrior. During this process I have learned quite a few useful things for my other projects, but not managed to make much of a game. I have a pretty good idea of what I want the game to be like though so maybe some day I will finish it. :3
A local multiplayer shooter for which the base was developed during the gamejam No More Sweden in 2014. The final product should be something like a Steam title to be played with 360 controllers.
This is a platform adventure rpg I have been working on for quite some time in various ways. You take control over the main character Cate Tharyn in her hunt for precious treasures and quest for revenge of her murdered parents. Some of the graphics are in pseudo 3D and the game can be played with gamepad (it is developed around the Dual Shock 2).
The Incredible Stick Warrior
A platform game where you try to reach the end of each level while collecting coins and fight opponents. It's a mix between a simple game, a fairly complex game (for what it is) and a weird graphical style.
Trauma-GUCCI was my submission for the No More Sweden gamejam 2015. It is a local multiplayer game for 2-4 players. Eeach player train their own trauma-guccis, small blob like animals, and send them into an arena where they battle the other players' guccis over precious genes and apples.
A webpage for the conference MakerDays.
The goal of FörskoleVis has been to develop a concept of work on energy issues in preschool, containing both inspirational material aimed at pre-school, and a technical visualization tools. This concept consists of a classic tutorials and a web-based app that uses the educator as support for working with visualization of energy in preschool.
World is a MMO semi-realtime strategy which I started working on after discovering the wonders of programming. It was inspired from games like Travian but aimed towards exploring more advanced an alternative game mechanics. I will put a link here sometime in the future so that anyone who wants to try it can register and perhaps build a little village.
A combined IDE and WYSIWYG editor for making webpages. A tool made for my ideal approach to making neat little sites.
My project diary/portfolio page which is also the very site you are staring at right now.
A prototype of what it would be like if a classical Fussball game was augmented with motors and game controllers.
Augmented Table Tennis
An augmented table tennis table which builds on MIT's Pingpong ++ project.
Enbarr mac Lir
A mobile VR where several players engage in competitive multiplayer racing. You are the mac Lirs, children of the sea. You must ride you mighty oceanic beasts (IKEA office chairs) to claim your birthright. Inspiration for the name comes from the Irish god Manannan mac Lir.
This is a group project me and some friends did as a station for an exhibition at a experience center called Universeum. It is designed for younger kids and while it is an actual game it i more centered around the ideas of exploration and playing. A pile of virtual leaves are projected onto the ground. Players can kick the leaves around physically by moving above the projection surface. Under the leaves there are hidden tokens. Players try to find all these in as little time as possible, though the game is really just a continues cycle of an interactive surface. When no one have played with it for a while foot steps will appear on the ground, showing bystanders how to play the game.
A digital mirror for use in the retail store Monki. It was designed to work as a bridge between the old store testing room and current social media trends with the user in center.
RAGE was created in a project where we attempted to create an arcade gun. The idea was to design it so that the user would get a really heavy impression, both from the guns actual weight, its fake recoil and its interaction and visuals.
Flaxa.tv is a project done as a collaboration between Interactive Institute and Utopia for the political week in Almedalen. It's the control page for a robot owl which sits on the shoulder of a person and makes the world a little more accessible. : )
In a not too distant future giant worms are eating and pooping their way through space. Certain gifted individuals have the ability to mind control these cosmic beasts, they are know as poopeteers.
New media applications and services are revolutionising social interaction and user experience in wide ranging industry sectors. The rapid emergence of human and environment sensing technologies, novel immersive presentation devices and high performance, globally connected network and cloud infrastructures is generating huge opportunities for application providers, service provider and content providers. These new applications are driving the convergence across devices, clouds, networks and services, and the merging of industries, technology and society.
To increase energy efficiency in buildings, but also achieve a sustainable society with conscious residents, required a change in energy behavior and energy efficient products. One method is to raise awareness among users about the connection between their behavior and energy use; for example by visualization of energy.
NFC and AR
This thesis explores how augmented reality and near field communication can be used as means of interaction in mobile gaming. In specific three prototype games have been developed and are analysed to find new design patterns which are supported by augmented reality and near field communication. The methods and the process of the development are described and analysed. Four interaction design patterns were discovered during the course of the project which helped to show that augmented reality and near field communication can be used for new forms of interaction in mobile games.
Novel Interface Design for Augmented and Virtual Reality Binoculars for Outdoor Exhibitions
Two emerging technologies for visualization in museum exhibitions are augmented reality and virtual reality, using position and orientation sensors to map and overlay information using immersive visual aids. In this paper we develop a novel layer-based interface design enabling a user to shift between augmented and virtual reality through limited panning movements and focusing actions. This is developed using real time visualization technology with the use context of an unsupervised outdoor installation. A participatory development and design process is carried out in iterative steps, in which users explore means of interaction through an uninformed meeting with the technology driven by the users’ own curiosity. We show that users are able to navigate easily through multiple visualized layers through the limited interaction possibilities afforded by the hardware robustness requirements. Additionally the implemented interface is designed to be compatible with standard smartphone hardware with a minimum of specialized parts.
Together Anywhere, Together Anytime
Modern social media systems are geared to serving weak ties: informal collections of individuals acting in relative isolation. But what about strong ties: the family and friends who form life's inner circle? More and more people are living apart. Can technology help keep them together?
Watch out! Banana
Game development is an ever growing industry. To use modern frameworks is essential for todays developers if they are to keep up with the advancements in technology and understand the next-generation platforms. In this report we describe an attempt to develop a game from a conceptual idea into a functional product. It also describes the problems we encountered when using Microsoft's game development framework XNA Game Studio and how they were solved. The report will show that using a flexible work process could be vital for success.
