Contribution: Junior UI Engineer
  • Reworked the map to be mouse-interactable for setting waypoints, panning, and toggling key points
  • Implemented letterboxing and screen resolution options for UWP and Steam versions.
  • Refactored the button hint system for PC so legends on every menu would be mouse-clickable and so that key and mouse bindings could be displayed everywhere (tutorial hints, menus, etc)
  • Reworked several menus such as weapon, amp, and trap selection to support mouse selection and scrolling while still being able to switch to and from controller and updating binding legends appropriately.
  • Extended the save/load system to support multiple save files and developed new UI for choosing between saves.
