Platform : PC

Barricade was the first real time game that actually had some content that I ever worked on. Mike Poole from Phyer was the designer of the game.
The game was created using my custom C++ engine Troglodyte, which used Opengl for rendering, OpenAL for audio, DirectInput for gamepad controls.
I initially was developing my game engine specifically for this game, but later left the group. I returned in 2011 to tackle the project again,
with my engine in a more complete state. The torch was later passed on to another coder, and I'm not sure the state of the project these days?

The alpha featured 3 robots, 4 levels, and 2 different kinds of blocks. The alpha showcases the bare systems of the game.
It had interesting block match type of mechanic that is present in the alpha, but do to no visual feedback, is hard to pickup on.
I learned a lot during the development of this prototype.
