Bash is the first real game where I helped with. Together with Pieter & Jeroen we developed this game for the Imaginecup 2008 edition. We were not 100% free for the game concept because the Imaginecup competition works every year with particularly theme, back then it was something with environment. When most teams opt for a "Sim" style game we chose for a 3rd Person action / platform game, where games like Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet & Clank were great sources of inspiration.
My contribution to this game is all the 3D part (with exception of the textures) and the rigs. As "usual" Jeroen did the animations (and since then he never wanted to do it again :D).

Let me also tell you that exporting these animations to FBX files was a HELL.
After the Imaginecup finals we also decided to enter the Dreambuildplay competition and had to port the game to XBox, sadly we (I mean our programmer :p) had to drop the shadows so it could run fluently on the XBox but we finally managed to get it working and add an extra minigame.
Even if the game doesn't look anno 2008 (but more 2004, probably because we had no experience of fancy shaders) and that we didn't achieved the world top 6 final (we still don't know what place we have between 7 and 20 :s) it was very cool to work on this one and I had a lot of fun.
