Castle Freak


Castle Freak is a 2D platformer made for the Abertay Game Lab Jump Jam. The theme was "Jump" and our game diversified this by putting the player in the boots of a ghost shouting Boo through a microphone to scare a family out of their home.


Perhaps my favourite game jam so far, the Abertay Game Lab's Jump Jam saw prestigous Abertay alumni return from studios across the UK to combine with gifted current students. The aim was to push boundaries a little more than usual and the quality of output was extremely high, for our own part we produced Castle Freak, a Unity PC game using your microphone as the main peripheral.

I had the joy of implementing the audio processing part of this project, being the core feature this allowed me to experiment with parts of the Unity interface I hadn't previously touched.
