KJ’s Island

Project Details

As with my previous levels, it was of an utmost importance to me to create an environment that is varied and easy to navigate. Hence, the I opted to split the island into five distinct zones: old town, downtown, hillside, residential area, and beach apartments. I also opted to keep the island’s size to approximately 1 square kilometer area for easy navigation and optimal asset density. The island is also void of any invisible walls or barriers, which would impede the exploration.
Thanks to this project, I developed a strong interest in asset creation and environmental design – topics, which I was previously unfamiliar with. It also served me as an ultimate test to push my focus and dedication to the limit. While it was very challenging, the end result, in my opinion, proved that all the time and effort that was invested to it was worth it.
