Web Games & Experiences

During my placement year at fish in a bottle, I was a Junior developer on a number of HTML5 games. These games work across Desktop and mobile/tablet (Kindle, IOS and Android) and range in complexity from simple menu driven experiences (Jim's Celeb Blender) to converting flash applications to HTML5 (Peppa Pig The New House) and mobile only games with accelerometer controls and 360-degree virtual tours (Ai Weiwei 360).

 

These projects showcase my ability to learn new skills quickly and to a point where I feel comfortable working with them. An example of this is using web based frameworks 'KrPano' and 'CreateJS', something I had never worked with before. My ability to quickly learn and improve these skills allowed me to showcase them to the producers at fish in a a bottle who were impressed with what I presented, so much so I was often able to be the only developer on a project (while still reporting to a hands off lead).

 

The projects varied in length, from 2 weeks to 3 months and I worked on each project from pre-production to Gold Master. During my placement year, my ability in time management increased significantly allowing for realistic estimating of project timescales.

Read Along Web Books

Working with Book Trust, we produced 2 HTML5 interactive read along books; "Oh No George" and "Theres a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea" featuring full mobile & desktop support. These story books had accompanying voice-overs from Eamonn Holmes and Angelica Bell with a BSL video version accessible from the menu. These books also featured sound effects and audio cues on user interaction. I was the only developer on the project with constant communication between me and a hands-off lead.
