Hi, welcome to my website. I’m Amber Smith, a Software Engineer at Monumental. I’ve been working on the MMORPG Crowfall for over a year now. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
I made my first game in Unity when I was in high school, and I haven’t stopped making games since then. This website showcases a bunch of my old and current projects.
Right now I’m really interested in VR development because it’s an incredible immersive technology that I find really exciting because it keeps evolving. I love learning how to work with new VR hardware, and so far I’ve worked on games for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Quest, Google Daydream, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Check out the “VR Projects” tab to see some of the cool VR games to which I’ve contributed!
Some fun facts about me are that my favorite game is Animal Crossing (in fact I’m a little bit obsessed- check out the 3D models I’ve made for 3D printing a house and van from the games). I also like to read a lot- I read 40 books in 2020! I’m also not very good at Pac-Man, but I really like the song “Pac-Man Fever” by Buckner & Garcia.
