Nocturne was My final capstone project for Full Sail University. Nocturne is A third-person stealth adventure game that takes place inside a space station. You play as a medic that's trying to save the station.

 

In the beginning, there was a total of 4 people and then an artist came at the end to help us make assets. There's a total of nine levels each level having its own unique mechanic. There are also 2 Main enemy types,

 

There is a patrol  entity that will patrol the area looking for the player and there is a wall entity that is able to go through walls and attack the player

Level Design

Level 1 Sketch

Level 1

Noctunre_R2

This level contains many mechanics such as a patrol AI,  turrets,  and lasers The idea for this level is for the player to start off by trying to take cover against a turret. Then to open the way out of the level you first must find a console that will help you open another console.

After you open the first console you have to go and backtrack your way but the door is locked you must go through the other hallway through the laser field. When you go through the laser field and you're back where you started you can activate the console that will unlock the doors that will allow you to open the lever to the exit of the level.
