About Me

Hi! I am Talal Zacharias Koch and I've been programming for over 10 years.

As a trained IT specialist in application development, I worked in the finance sector for 6 years.

My strong passion for game development has lead me to change my career and study Games Programming at the SAE Institute in Frankfurt for the last 2 years.

 

I've been constantly working in parallel on Project: Pioneer, my personal passion project.

If you have any questions or inquiries, feel free to contact me! 😁

CUBE is inspired by Captain Toad Treasure Tracker.
 

The gameplay consists of casual 3D Puzzles using perspective.


This simple and cute looking has a complicated Mission System its backbone, that allows the world to be build in front of the Player without loading times.

This project is a contender for the  SAE Award.
