Terminator: Salvation

Terminator Salvation is a third-person shooter action video game, slated for a release on May 19, 2009 to coincide with the release of the upcoming film of the same name on the same week. It is developed by the Halcyon Company’s gaming subsidiary, Halcyon Games, along with GRIN and published by Equity Games and Evolved Games. The game was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Set in 2016 in Los Angeles, it is an interquel that takes place between the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation and follows Common’s Barnes character, though players will assume the control of John Connor. However, Christian Bale refused to lend his voice and likeness for the game. Rose McGowan will be in the game as well, voicing the game-exclusive character Angie Salter, who is an ex-high school teacher. On the other hand, Common and Moon Bloodgood are voicing their own characters from the film (Barnes and Blair, respectively).


I worked on this game as a Level Designer. The main level that i have worked on is the '‘Hollywood Hills’' level which is considered one of the best looking levels in the game. I designed a big part of the layout, was responsible for the visuals and scripted a part of the gameplay. Complete list of levels that i worked on: Level 1 (some bug fixing and polishing), Level 2a (art pass), Level 3a (art pass), Level 4a (polishing, part of art pass), Level 6 (art pass, bug fixing, polishing, scripting and gameplay), Level 8 (art pass); Level 9 (art pass), helped out with localization for the German version of the game.
