About this Demo
Demonstrates understanding of creating a complex game system through the use of C#, using code to dynamically modify game objects and components, creating user interface elements and creating audial / visual polish through the use of 3D positional sound, particle FX, lighting, animations and "juicing". Additional modeling done within Blender.

Play the role of an up-and-coming Starfleet officer engaged in some holodeck target practice. Shoot red cubes for up to 6 points. Blue cubes will add 3s to your alloted time while shooting a green cube (friendly) will cost you 14s.
