(VR Game)

Introduction

Program(s): Unity, Maya

 

Orion's Leap was created for my 5th trimester at SAE Qantm, Melbourne as an academic project. Orion’s Leap is a single player, Virtual Reality aerial grapple based platforming action game where players take on the role of the last Custodian on terraforming station that is situated above a ‘to be developed’ gas giant within the Andromeda galaxy.

 

A catastrophic glitch within the support robot code has caused a hostile robotic takeover event where all drones and assistant machines have become haywire, and seek to destroy human life, as well as jeopardizing all hopes of terraforming the gas giant below. The Commander, who oversees the terraforming project and his crew retreated to a space station above the planet when the takeover occurred, however soon realises that they have forgotten someone… their worst, most unreliable Custodian in record. Hesitantly, they upgrade his equipment in order to make the repairs necessary to return the Citadel back to some form of normality.
