WatchOut is a survival game on smartphone for two to four players with asymmetrical cooperation. In a zombie-infested world, three players controls survivors while the fourth control the Watcher, using security cameras and other electronic devices to help the survivors by spotting zombies, luring them or blocking their progression.
The game’s main interest come from the Electric Grid system. The watcher need some generators to produce electricity for his devices, and those generators can only be turned on by the survivors, which create a two-sided dependency.
The game was developed in two week by a team of twelve people, including a gameplay programmer and a network programmer.
My tasks :
- Gameplay Programmer
My mission on this project was to program the survivor’s gameplay and the zombie’s I.A.. I had to code the controls as well as an inventory system allowing the survivors to equip several weapons with a limited amount of ammos as well as to use others items like flares, traps or baits.
