WHAT ALI DOES

SOME OF ALI’S BEST WORKS

The Tale of Bistun

In Development

The Tale of Bistun is an isometric action adaptation of a romantic story. The tale of a mountain carver named Farhad and the Armenian princess Shirin, who becomes the queen of Persia.
Farhad faces King Khosrow as a love rival. The king would step aside and allow Farhad to marry the princess, only if he can annihilate the mountain Bistun and carve out a new road.
This game features a brutal combat system which we call snap fighting. You can also explore the semi-open world during day and night.

Echo Delta: Incursion

2015

Echo Delta: Incursion is a online cooperative, tactical, first person shooter set in a series of very large, open, island environments. The player is challenged with planning their own missions whilst attempting to recapture a series of strategic hotspots and clear the islands of a hostile invasion force.

I faced a series of challenges working on network programming, AI, animation programming and gameplay. The technical challenges we overcame were extraordinary and the final result exceeded expectation.
