2nd Play test

week 5
This week for me went into more tweaking of the caster as well as polishing the AI a bit more for the upcoming play-test so that we could test their difficulty and see how players reacted to them,
I also had to go into level building a bit so that the level would be done on time. I added bounds to the level to keep the player from clipping into stuff and leaving the level. This mostly just took a […]

Casting Fog

Now I’m back for the last few posts.
Week 4
AI takes time to implement so a lot of this week went to implementing the caster and it’s mechanics. More bugs and fixes ensures when implementing new things and this was no exception. path-finding not working as intended and attacks not happening but most of them where easily fixed even though they might have taken some time.
Towards the end of the week i implemented an asset that we actually bought from the […]

BGP2017 – Week 2

Character Controller
To handle the movement of tools and avatars in the game we need a Character Controller. Unity does have a standard component for Character controllers, which is cool. However it still only supports capsule colliders, Which is a problem as we have a stretcher and an axe which would not work with capsule colliders.
Now, there are two options: Either you go for a Rigid body controller or you go for a custom character controller with support for a Box […]

The end of a project

So that’s that. Our dear game Somnium is finally finished. What’s more is that we participated in the Gotland Game conference and it was such a blast. Not only to have people play our game, but also to play the games that everyone else had made. The level of creativity really took me for a spin this year!
With these ten weeks in minds, it’s been such a rewarding experience. It’s been a rollercoaster for sure, but a fun one! I’m […]
