Bandfuse: Rock Legends (PS3, XBox 360) - Realta Entertainment, 2013

Originally contracted for VFX, shaders, and particles. Duties expanded to include UI design, art asset creation and optimization, plus a few odds and ends like video production.
Bandfuse - Menu Fire VFX
The very first directive upon arrival was "Make some awesome fire behind those buttons".
Bandfuse - 4x player gameplay example
I owned VFX, scripting, and art for the gameplay screen. Got vocal pitch tracking in at the 11th hour.
Bandfuse - Note shader texture masks
To save memory, the shader for the notes used color masks. Also easier to update art assets that way.
Bandfuse - Positive feedback electric VFX
Shader used as positive feedback. Created undulating energy using a turbulence map.
Bandfuse - Negative feedback burn VFX
Shader used x-position and specialized alpha map to burn away missed notes.
Bandfuse - Tuner optimization
I got the tuner up from 10fps to 60fps and came up with the 'mute to advance' feature.
