TERRA MELIOR is a sci fi RPG shooter with challenging gameplay, an artistic style, and a chilling story. The adventure takes place on a harsh planet of ice and snow overrun by a monster apocalypse. You play as a soldier re-animated by the flames of a dark magic she discovered. The game has 3rd person shooting (not cover based – you’ll be dodging instead!), as well as melee and magic abilities, and focuses on creative, challenging enemies, and exhilarating boss battles. There is an in-depth character system that includes gameplay mechanics like snow depth, stamina, and poise. The game will be released on Windows and Mac. There will be a Kickstarter (to be announced!) that will let you get the game at a discount.

Hey all!

Good news. Mammoths.

Here's a video:

I finally figured out how to add colliders to their legs and tusks that also push the player away. So the player can finally run underneath bosses! It's a little jerky right now though.

The green areas are the rigidbody colliders. They have to be very tall so the player won't go on top of them:

They also have an attack where they bodyslam onto the ground and then shoot lasers out of their eyes.

I also added "poof" effects. Like when a boss does a big attack that stirs up snow and... poof.

I made a single particle emitter that the game manager controls. Monsters can request a "poof", and submit a hitbox. The game manager moves the particle emitter through the hitbox and emits particles.

Particle emitters can do this automatically, but I can't control their size/shape via script. This way, I can make any box-shaped collision I want, rather than making 50 different collision particle emitters and updating them all manually when I make a change. It also lets me handle all the "poof"s in one emitter, speeding the game up, and providing an easy way to limit the total particle number.

I'll probably do the same for other effects like blood when I start optimizing. Poof.

Here's another pic of the area I've been testing in:

Thanks for stopping by!

oh k. i see that the game uses static animation when the player or enemy is death,why not just use ragdoll,it much more simple and fun.

I have ragdolls, but I added them when I was still new to Unity, so they have some issues. Eventually, I'll probably use ragdolls for most deaths, and static animations for special ones like freezing or being eaten.
