Figure 8

Figure 8 is a contemplative first person exploration game about the struggle and doubt most creative people go through when trying to finish their work, narrated by a fictional author reflecting on their work on a story.

I started this project as a simple 3d scene in UDK/Unreal Engine 3 to improve my 3d modelling skills and eventually made it into the game it is now.

Everything in this game was made by me, with the exception of the voice acting, some tiling textures and some background sound effects.

Mostly due to house moves and job responsibilities work on Figure 8 was performed very much on an “on and off” basis with some gaps and breaks of up to several months and various periods of experimentation with elements that did not make it into the final version, such as enemy AI, weapons and combat and overall content. Unfortunately, some of these things had to be abandoned due to technical issues.

Figure 8 was feature in the list of “Best free games” upon it’s release over at Rock Paper Shotgun.
