‘Shush!!!’ was created by the staff team during the University of Portsmouth 2019 Game Jam. Developed during the five-day game jam, Shush!!! gives players control of Isabel, a historian searching for the long lost manuscript of ‘Five Generations Hence’ in the abandoned and decrepit house of the late author and librarian, Lillian B. Horace. Players must navigate the house, find the manuscript, and escape while avoiding the lingering, foreboding presence of the erstwhile librarian. Be careful. Be quiet. Shush!!!
Armoured Onslaught is an explosive blend between Top-Down Shooter and Tower Defence. You will need to make use of both strategy and skill as you fight your way through near endless hordes of deadly foes.
2D Volumetric Global Illumination Lighting Tech Demo
A technical demo of a 2D lighting system that makes use of real-time global illumination techniques to produce dynamic and highly customisable volumetric lighting for 2D scenes. This was produced in part during the final year of a Computer Games Technology degree at the University of Portsmouth.
RHIB sim development for Navy training with Novatech
The RHIB (Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat) project, a collaboration between students from the RIGPR unit at the University of Portsmouth, Novatech, and Petty Officer Neil Sutton of the Royal Navy, operates using a 3 degrees of freedom motion platform, complete with replica control console.
Following a trial conducted by a Royal Navy coxswain, the motion simulator was deemed a realistic and efficient training sim alternative. This advanced RHIB simulator will explore the use of force feedback in powerboat training and potentially allow the Royal Navy Reserves and Royal Navy users to gain a stronger sense of the RHIB’s performance in action.
