My prototyping work often starts from a conversation that includes someone asking, “is that even possible?”, and me saying, “no idea, but I’ll make it anyway!”

Software: Audition, FL Studio, Photoshop, Poser Pro 2014 Game Dev, Unity.

Hardware: USB microphone.

I made Punchy as a short concept game to test the idea of making sound effects into a microphone as a way of playing a game. In Punchy, you make loud “YAAH!” sounds into the microphone to make your character punch bad guys off the screen.

I had never worked with microphone input in Unity until this point, but I made the entire project in a day, including graphics, animation, sounds, and coding.
