This week has seen the continuation of the Chapter 1 level design. Next up is level optimisation using mesh combining and culling triggers to prepare for the inclusion/testing of NPCs.

Player Damage and Atmospheric Effect tests
Here's a couple of images from our recent Player Damage and Atmospheric Effect tests.

  • Blood spatters the screen as the player takes damage obstructing the view and providing a direction indicator to the source. It 'drips' down screen and fades over time.
  • Camera effects and lens flares create a sense of surrealism as the player’s health wanes and death becomes imminent. Background music and sfx aid in creating the surreal atmosphere.
