Hey everybody and welcome to the second Screenshot Saturday! This week I have been working on the virtual training area in cat game.
First off, I have implemented some particle effects into the section. When you hit spikes, the player will explode into lots of pixel-y particles. For testing I bound a key to creating the particles, but that won’t be in the final game.
You can see me jumping around and creating lots of particles in the video.
Once I added in the ability for particles to collide with each other, it resulted in some very crazy situations…
With the particles tuned to my liking, I implemented a death animation. The player disappears and the particles burst outwards, scattering all over the place. Then the camera teleports to the spawn point and the player reappears in a cloud of more particles.
That’s all for this week. In next week’s Screenshot Saturday you’ll probably see some fire/explosion effects and lots of destruction as I work on the spaceship crashing scenes. Stay tuned for next time!
