The game GoatPunks has gone on to win several accolades including ‘Best in Gaming Showcase – Unite Sydney 2019’, ‘Winner of Best Game Physics – Intel Level Up 2016’, ‘Nomination for best Multiplayer game – SXSW 2016’. This project set out on technical endeavours that dived into asynchronous AI, adaptive bots, local and online multiplayer, console development, and variety of unique game mechanics that have never been tried before.

The journey was an attempt to unify both artistic and programming skillsets into one ambitious project.
