Kessel Run

Kessel Run

Mini Video Game

I built Kessel Run, a Star Wars-themed space adventure game, one summer while I was in grad school using the open-source programming language Processing.

The simple nature and graphics of the game necessitated some sweet retro game packaging be designed (shown below) as a fun addition to the project requirements. The Falcon game piece is incorporated as a vector SVG file, allowing for the ship to scale up each time the player collects a piece of “spice,” while also making evasion of the “asteroids” more difficult as the ship grows. And to make playing just as fun as any early coin-operated game, no instructions included!

Unfortunately, outdated file requirements make playing the original game difficult, so I included a recording below. If you want to take the time to get up-and-running, though, use the link above.
