"Ruination" is a 3D side scrolling platformer built from the UDK game engine. The game was built over 3 months for the Advance Game Design course at SFU in Surrey, B.C.
After being taken prisoner during a recent war with an alien race, an outpost was set up on a remote planet. The aliens, known as Gurads, began mining operations and constructed a prison to detain their P.O.W's. After an emergency evacuation was ordered, the prisoners were left to die and must now work together to reach the surface and escape the crumbling planet by finding fuel cells to power a broken ship.
