Commentary:

Infernum was our End of Year Project for Second year of college. We were asked to make a portage of our Board Game which we produced during our First Year of College. It was a ambitious project as we choose to make it on Unity 3D and it was the first time using the engine.  
Adapting the Board Game to a digital version of the game was a new experience. We had to think about methods to adapt the gameplay of a physical game into virtual digital version. Modified some of the mechanics to the fit the digital version of the game.
