Star Troll was developed over the course of 8 or 9 weeks, it was an opportunity to try out developing a 2D shoot em up. It's an endless shoot em up where you aim to get the highest score. The use of waves of enemies in the gameplay meant each new wave could have some level of randomness while also having some control of the difficulty as the game went on. The team worked really effectively on this project and we were really happy how it ended up.

My role

I actually didn't project manage this game, which was a nice change, Thomas Mc Closkey managed it very effectively. My main roles were advisory as well as helping with Quality Assurance.
