Vedelem: The Golden Horde

My role: Gameplay Programmer
Project Overview
Vedelem: The Golden Horde is a Real Time Strategy game set in 13th century eastern Europe. The Golden Horde is the biggest and deadliest Mongolian invasion that the world has ever seen. As the last line of defense, you are called to save your lands against the Mongols. They will ruthlessly attempt to pillage your economy and bring your Keep to ruin.

Manage the economy of your Castle, build new structures, find and exploit resources and expand your borders while mustering an army capable of repelling the Mongolian Invasion.

We chose to use Unity DOTS, which allowed us to push push the limits and have thousandths of units active in the level.
Because of this I learned a lot about DOTS, data oriented development, multithreading and using Burst to write efficient SIMD compatible code.
