Chess Ultra

I Started working on the project as the principal artist when the idea was to remaster the old “pure chess” title. After initial testing and the introduction of support for VR technologies though it was apparent that the game needed a much bigger rehaul so all the environments have been reworked from the ground up. Later in the project development we started hiring new art personal and I moved to art directing them while maintaining an active involvement in most of the game developing process. All the shaders, post processing, particles, lighting and effects in the game have been created by me.
