Lighting & Dressing

Since I was responsible for a lot of the lighting, dressing and level optimization, I had good contact with both level design and programmers. The image above is an example of the first time the player encounters a vent that she can go through. I thought it would be a good idea to guide the player with a strong light pointing straight at it; the shadow cast by the player giving a nice dynamic feeling to the section. I was also responsible for the scripts that made the lights flash in some sections of the game. This gave a whole other vibe to the section, often highlighting the scary monsters that lurk in the darkness.
