Details

I did an internship at Ronimo Games, and created an ingame level editor, that is also synchronized over network. That last feature proofed to be pivotal during development, allowing the game designers to tweak jump distances, cover, and other areas of the game in real time.

Besides that I also implemented a basic particle system & editor, which later was heavily expanded.

Together with artists and game designers we came up with new tools for their work flow, which I then worked on with approval of the Lead Programmer

After my internship, Ronimo Games hired me for a couple of months to implement various optimizations, such as a culling system and a very fast memory allocator.
