Canadian Forces: Direct Action

The Canadian Army approached me and offered me paid work on a mod they were creating for Swat 4 which would act as a training tool for their troops. I created two Unreal based levels for them, one set on an oil rig and the other based around the real-life location of Pickton Farm, setting of multiple murders by farmer Willy Pickton.

“Considering the events of the past week (notorious serial killer Willy Pickton was just sentenced to life imprisonment on December 10th for murdering as many as 50 women from Vancouver’s downtown east side), that farm tour ranked as one of the creepiest gaming moments I’ve ever experienced.”

The mod won the People’s choice award at the Annual Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Florida, 2008
