Perverted Prison

In Perverted Prison, the player is given the option to escape the prison. However, to do so they must fight off patrolling guards while trying to find ten hidden targets. They must navigate a very complicated “Teleportal” Prison in order to find the targets and earn their freedom. For Perverted Prison, I designed the level, I completed all the gameplay scripting using Kismet in UDK, and I modified the UDK HUD to include a target counter. I also wrote all of the dialogue found in the level.
