INSTALL WIZARD

Out on Steam!

Install Wizard is a 3D dungeon crawler where you play as a simple wizard inside of a 90’s era computer who has been tossed aside after installing the evil operating system, MythOS. It is your job as the Install Wizard to become more powerful by taking on the programs of MythOS with your techno-magic.

 

PROJECT DETAILS

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Install Wizard was a game created in the Unity Engine for the Senior Captstone with a focus on fast-paced action and 90's computer humor. I worked on creating context for the project, making new levels like Tutorial, Recycle Bin, and the final boss of the project. Alongside writing the narrative of the game, trying to capture the spirit of the time period in the character writing. By working on the Narrative and Level design at the same time, it allowed the story and level themes to work together and build on each other.
