Play It:

 

Goal:

  • Continue the success of the series
  • Optimize a template so I can finish coding a game with 3 levels in 1 week

Outcome:

  • Causality 4 was the first game that I coded in AS3 and it went very smoothly
  • The series is still going strong and I expect new installments to come out in the future
  • We now have a great template that I created that allows me to code a single causality level in 1 day or less

My Roles:

  • Designer – For some of the games I was the Lead Designer and some just helped out with a few puzzles
  • Programmer – All Causalities, CounterSticks, and Causality Adventures after Causality 3 have been coded by me
