Mipe3D is a 3d rendering engine I am currently working on. It has already all the core parts that makes it easy to create a scene of renderable 3D objects. The current features of the engine include

  • a resource manager that automatically loads all the materials and models and gives the client code an easy access to them,
  • a render system that takes care of creating and managing all the renderables and
  • a simple input system for controlling the scene.

I am currently working on skeletal animations and I probably make some kind of lighting system as well in the near future.

Planet A18 & Tile2D

Tile2D is a game engine written in C++. I started programming it back in 2014 and it is probably the most challenging project I have worked on so far. I made all the engine subsystems such as physics, rendering system and object serialization from scratch.

I also programmed a game titled Planet A18 on top of Tile2D and made all the assets as well. The game got the fourth place in the Assembly Game Dev competition '18.

Before I got involved in game development, I worked as a freelancer pianist-composer-arranger for over 10 years. Lately I've been composing and producing music for my personal game projects.
