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 am currently an Engineering Intern on the Native Team at a San Francisco based startup called Discord. On the side, I have been working on my 2D physics engine (Source) which I intend to integrate with my data driven game engine in C++ (Source). Before this, I worked on ‘The Draft‘, my capstone project at FIEA. The Draft is a RTS game in VR where the player plays both the tactician and soldier in a gladiatorial sport.
I am interested in learning more about game engine architecture, game physics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
