Soaring Shadow Mechanic


To hone my gameplay design skills, I created "Soaring Shadow" a project centred on creating a novel and captivating gameplay mechanic entirely from scratch. This endeavour guided me through the entire gameplay design pipeline, commencing from the conceptual stage and progressing through documentation, engine implementation, and final polish within Unreal Engine 5. 

The core mechanic devised is a stealth-focused traversal system, enabling players to shroud themselves in shadows and gracefully soar towards enemies for swift assassinations. This innovative gameplay mechanic is intricately tied to a resource system termed "Life Force Energy," allowing players to execute the traversal ability. The strategic element lies in replenishing this energy by successfully eliminating enemies, providing a continuous and fluid experience as players seamlessly navigate from one foe to the next.
