WELCOME

My name is Michael Parkin-White, I am a 22-year old programmer primarily interested in video game development, graphics programming and high performance computing. I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2017 with a First-Class Bachelors in Computer Science.

I am interested in video game development and am a co-founder of MantaGames, our current primary project is Vitality, a 2D sandbox survival game. Vitality is a commercial project, and we have been greenlit on Steam, so the game will be distributed on that platform when it is complete.

Aside from my main project, my research interests revolve around 3D graphics programming. I find shaders and graphics techniques interesting and enjoy the challenge of bringing new visual effects to life. As a result, I am also in the process of working on a simple 3D level editor, rendering pipeline and all-around 3D game engine to learn about different aspects of game development.

My primary intention with this website/blog is to create a portfolio where I can post all of my latest developments, as well as share my opinions on other topics of interest to me.
