    3D-Artist for a short project for the advertisement company's exhibition display, a VR Apprenticeship Finder. In this short Virtual Reality game the player chooses if different attributes fit to them and in the end gets a recommendation for a fitting apprenticeship. In between the questions they also have the possibility to catch balloons flying by, thereby reaching a score at the end of the game and entering a contest.

    The game was realised by me, two fellow students who programmed and an employee of the firm. I acted as 3D-Artist, Animator and Game Designer, the employee of the advertisement company supported me with the Game Design and 2D Art. The fellow students did the programming.
