Post news RSS Oh no! How an AI ship ruined my video

Mostly for fun, here is what happens when you try to do videos the honest way, without disabling enemies.

I was trying to shoot video to explain powercells and power management in ships. Just starting, and this enemy ship comes out of nowhere! (this happens as levels are procedurally generated, small asteroid fields spawn close to the gate).

Of course, when you start the game you do not have weapons, so it is tricky to get rid of these little enemies. They are moving very randomly but can still do a fair amount of damage. The best strategy is to distract them (see previous video) but in this case it was too late! See how I tried to address the situation :-)

Ok, now I have to postpone the power management tutorial ; still I thought it was interesting to show this little improvisation.
