Show-Off: PBT Notion v2 by biip

I was asked to share some footage of some keycaps I bought, so a video was made to do exactly that!

Defender of Seattle

I contributed additional programming to Defender of Seattle, a VR action game created for Make-a-Wish AK/WA, a collaboration between AIE Seattle and Virtual Worlds Society.

My work was focused on porting the VR experience to the Valve Index and polishing the gameplay experience with respect to feedback.

I also coordinated logistics and testing of the VR game leading up to the event for the day the wish was granted to the recipient.
