Psychonauts Sweded

Psychonauts 1 remade in the Unreal engine. The "sweded" in the title is a refrence to the film "Be Kind Rewind", where movies are re-made in a charming, "quick and dirty" way. With that mindset, and the desire to try out Unreal, I made Psychnoauts Sweded in a week.
Release: 2021

Monkey Island Archeology

I assisted the Video Game History Foundation in studying the source code of THE SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND (1990) and MONKEY ISLAND II - LECHUCK’S REVENGE (1991). For that I learned the basics of the game engine SCUMM to uncover and re-implement cut content. The findings were prepared for a live presentation for the 30th anniversary of THE SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND.
