After going to EGXRezzed 2018, I was able to get feedback in person, on my Showreel (from a couple of people at the event). For reference, I am a third-year student, studying BSc Computer Games (Software Development) at Southampton Solent University.
This latest version is based on that feedback, please let me know what you think of this version :).

Final Major Project (FMP): Project Title: Balanced First-Person Shooter Level Generator. Engine Used: Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Programming Language(s) Used: C++. Description: This plugin for UE4, will generate a level over a single plane, using Defensiveness, Flanking and Dispersion coefficients (as well as heuristics), to balance the placement of a level’s pieces together, to form a level.
AI-Assignment for A Unit of My Course: Project Title: AIAssignment. Engine Used: Unity 2017. Programming Language(s) Used: C#. Description: This project provides the implementation, of an AI-System, we were to design, with the purpose of following a certain set of rules. I designed and implemented a Behaviour Tree for this (in a nutshell, having the entities react to their current state in the world, based on certain conditions).
Project Title: Search and Collect. Engine Used: N/A. Programming Language(s) Used: C++ (along with the DirectX 11 SDK/api). Description: In the game, the Player controls a hover-tank, with the objective of collecting 20 Energy Capsules (which they must find), whilst knocking barrels aside, navigating around obstacles (boulders) and avoiding the black coloured Enemy hover-tank, that is able to destroy the Player’s hover-tank. I had to learn how to use DirectX11 from the beginning, before implementing the features for this game.
Project Title: Space Puck. Engine Used: Unity. Programming Language(s) Used: C#. Description: I worked in a team for this project, as a programmer. The point of the game is to use your space-ship to punt a puck around the game area, to score a point by getting it into the opponent’s goal area. There are variations on the core Space Puck game-mode, such as Space Pug (with a pug-dog as the puck, instead of the regular puck) and Death Puck (with an entity that moves randomly around the play area). This game can be downloaded from Itch.io, at: https://john-o-really.itch.io/space-puck.
Project Title: Quest: to be Defined. Engine Used: Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Programming Language(s) Used: C++. Description: The Player, is to follow a story through to completion, not knowing at the start, exactly why they have come upon a canyon. Blueprint, a Terrain Layer, Behaviour-Trees, UMG Widgets and Slate (the UI System for UE4), are also used in this project.
