Yowan Langlais is a co-founder at Juicy Beast Studio. They are 4 friends making games under that name. They founded the studio back in 2009 and they released over 10 games since then. They're located near Montreal (Canada), and they work in a classy office at the top of a skyscraper. Okay, that was a lie. They actually work from an old tiny storage room in a basement.
Designing a game with an appropriate difficulty curve is something really hard, but what happens when you try to scale difficulty, but without a curve?
Making a game is rarely a straightforward process, and if so odds are the maker did not care enough. Game design is much like an ecosystem; we can see the birth and death of many ideas through the evolution of the design. Here are examples.
A finished game is rarely the same as its original concept, but why and how the basic rules of a game can be transformed through a loop of four simple but fundamental steps: execute, test, evaluate, find solution. See how we managed it in Toto Temple.
We need an unique game, with rules that set it apart from a generic platformer. Now itís time to take you through the journey that has been designing Toto Temple as an unique game!
Collision/Physics engine in unity have been a blessing, but it has itís fair share of flaws when trying to adapt it to a fast paced platformer, now I will talk about these and the workarounds to get near perfect collision detection.
In Toto Temple Deluxe, we need the characters to tightly respond to a player's inputs. It requires a little bit of common sense, psychology in game design and lots of foreseeing in the code. Letís take it a step further with the jumping mechanism.
