Fairytale Fights is a hack-and-slash title for the XBox 360 and Playstation 3 based on the Unreal 3 Engine. This title is rated Mature(ESRB) / 16+ (PEGI). You play as one of four fairytale characters who lost their fame, your goal is to reclaim it.

This next-gen game was created with a decent sized team and some outsourcing. I was placed on the team 2.5 years after the project kick-off and worked on it till the game shipped. I was also responsible for most of the coding modifications needed for the demo versions available for the XBox 360 and PS3 (both: Disk + Downloadable).
