December 10, 2022

Louisiana State University


Plight is the inaugural project created by the LSU DMAE class of Fall 2022. The video game is a crafting 3-D sidescroller made in Unreal with a team of 8 students with a variety of backgrounds. It takes place at the Pick n' Pumpkin in Mycelcity where evil spores are traversing the land creating pockets of necrotic mushroom. It is up to Jackie to craft her way to victory and save Mycelcity from their miserable fate. Jackie is able to craft, fight and throw potions at enemies. Through clevel mixology and fealess combat, Jackie needs to survive and reclaim her new role as the Leader of the Land!
