Hey! I am Siddhant Grover. In 2013, I made pong with a couple of friends in Unity3D while watching a YouTube video series. From that point on I have been programming games. After completing my undergraduate degree in Computer Science, I decided to pursue my Masters in Interactive Entertainment at Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA), University of Central Florida.
I recently graduated after finishing an internship at a startup called Discord and I’m looking for a job in the games industry! While I was at UCF, I had worked on my own 2D physics engine (Source) as a personal project, and a data driven game engine in C++ (Source). Also, I was a Gameplay and AI Programmer on ‘The Draft‘, my capstone project at UCF. The Draft is a VR game developed in Unreal Engine 4 where the player plays both the tactician and soldier in a gladiatorial sport.
I’m passionate about programming gameplay and AI. And I’m looking forward to learning more about game engine architecture, artificial intelligence, game physics and machine learning.
