Klexos is a mulitplayer game, where the player plays against his friends via Lan. In doing so he has to hide amongst AIs as good as possible, so that the other players can’t detect him before he detected them. The goal of the game is to be the first player to detect all of the others, but be careful, otherwise you will die for wrongly detecting too many AIs!

Out Of Sight
Out of Sight is a game that allows the player to perceive the loss of one of the five senses. By only relying on touch and sound, the player is forced to navigate through various levels and to solve puzzles. These could be achieved easily without the impairment of sight, which is taken for granted by most people on a daily basis. Through a combination of adjustable levels of impairment and randomized puzzles we provide a game which not only is exciting to play but also insightful.

- The learning concept is set in space, with metaphors to explain the concepts to the players.
- The game combines RTS Mechanics and Building Systems, and combines those with some Tower Defense Mechanics.
- The games graphic style is kept close to the look of actual bacteria and viruses, which makes them easily recognizable when seen elsewhere like a biology textbook.

Sunrise Burglary starts with just a little introduction on what happened and what you have to do. You find yourself in a overview of a small town and can from there enter the first level.
The first few levels are a gentle introduction to the interactive elements of the game, with very few new elements in each level.

Ast3roids is a 3D revival of the classic arcade space shooter “Asteroids”. In the original game the player had to destroy incoming asteroids by turning in 2D space and shooting them before getting hit. In our remake we add the third dimension to make the gameplay more interesting. Moreover, the player aims by moving an Android device. This way the player has a direct connection to the movement of the ship and hence a better gaming experience. For destroying the asteroids there are two kinds of weapons; an unlimited fuzzy plasma shot and a missile with with limited ammo that recharges slowly, which destroys all asteroids in a large radius around its impact point.
Technology: – Unreal Engine 4 for the stunning graphics and easy to use blueprints Android Device velocity sensors, as input device for steering the space ship

Story: Player Character is half human/half machine and is locked up in a skyscraper-like concentration camp (human/machine bastards are not well liked in this society, which consists of either humans or machines – no hybrids) in a dystopian future. The player is weak and sick because his immune-system isn’t as good as the one of a “real” human and he is left to die. Of course he wants to flee!
Gameplay: The goal of the game is to escape the building. The building consists of lots of floors, each floor represents one level. The gameplay of a level is divided into two parts: first a 3D stealth part and then a 2D puzzle part. In the 3D part the player has to sneak past the guards and reach the floor exit. The floor exit however is locked and an puzzle has to be solved to advance to the next floor/level. The result of the puzzle also influences the players abilitys during the next level.

Vertizontal is a multiplayer split screen game for two players. The map consists of two seperated walls. The two characters (a spider and a human) reach the top of a wall. The player who reaches the top first wins the game. Each players has a different camera perspective. From the person’s point of view the map looks like a wall, while from the spider’s point of view the map looks like a road. To improve gaming experience the map also contains obstacles and items which can be collected by the player and can give a siginificant advantage over the opponent. Furthermore the map is generated randomly and therefore each game is different.
