Cullinan City Heist (team)

Cullinan City Heist (team) A four player split-screen arcade vehicle combat game in fictional Cullinan City, involving diamond capturing and player-on-player theft.

The aim is to collect as many diamonds as possible and to deliver them to the central point of the map. However, other players can steal your diamonds by crashing into your car. You have to decide whether you would like to go for a high multplier by delivering many diamonds at once and an increased risk of other players stealing your loot, or delivering the diamonds in smaller batches.

Technical details

This project was written in C++ using the Horde3D engine and the Box2D physics engine. I have contributed as a gameplay programmer and initial team lead. I organised meetings to discuss the design of the game and made sure all members agreed on the global concept. As a programmer I have set up the HUD, the minimap and the gameplay elements.
