Second Scholar

A grid based puzzle game in which the flow of time is directly synchronized with the directions of your movement. Using your powers over time, solve various puzzles to become the master of time.

I was the technical lead for the project. I was responsible for coordinating the work done by the programmers and ensuring clean integration of individual systems. My own code contributions included the base graphics architecture, serialization systems, graphical post-processing, level editor, GUI framework, cut scene system, etc.
