Hey all! It's Alex, and let me just start by saying:
SUMMER IS HERE!
Finally we are out of school and we have time to hang with friends and among other things, work on Tension. We actually have been working a lot lately and suffice to say the game looks quite different from the last post in the sense we have a HUD!
It ended up being more of a theme setting object than actual information display. This is because in our game we want to have a minimalistic feel to the HUD.
The HUD started simply with the helmet outline, to which we added an altimeter to the left side, and decided to use images instead of numeric values on the altimeter because.. Well quite frankly it's cute. So cute.
In the video I'll also be showing off one of our alpha maps, just a simple orange free roam city but fun none the less.
Expect another post soon as we are in full swing (lolz) and excited to show off what we complete. As always any suggestions on the HUD are welcome, we were thinking of adding a lens flare, thoughts?
