John Anderson

"Contracted for game and level design for 3D action game, BLOOD. I worked with the producer, programmer, and other level designers in building ideas for the implementation of this game. At the beginning, few graphics and game monsters had yet to be designed, and I was involved in nearly every aspect of the game’s look and special effects, which were then created to suite the level designers’ needs. My main designing tool was Apogee/3D Realm’s Build engine editor, which toggles between 2D Grid Map Mode and real-time 3D mode (for actual editing inside the level)."
--Resume
