Senior Project - Hover


A 3D Hovercraft Flight Simulator

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Kirstin Boes, Thomas Carey, Shane Hilton and Daniel Szabo
Boulder, CO

VR-1, Inc. develops 3D, multi-player video games for the PC market for publishers such as Merit Studios, Interactive Magic, Epicenter and Rocket Science. Much of the game development takes place in St. Petersburg, Russia, where VR-1 has over 30 programmers. Over the past few years VR-1 has developed an object-oriented 3D game engine which allows one to create 3D game environments such as flight simulators, Doom-style games, and other virtual reality based applications. The goal of this project was to create the game concept and to develop an application using this technology. The game is based on piloting a hovercraft around the "Hover Dome", a futuristic entertainment attraction whose participants were selected by the evil Krylon. It was developed in C++ using an object-oriented approach and runs under DOS.
