SUDDEN GLORY Development – Particles and flashy bits

Here’s a small video of me working on some of the particle effects (and the game logic that spawns them), and some of the art assets (and the logic on how they behave).

For the particles, the idea is that when certain things get destroyed, they leave a crater behind (or some burnt wreckage). I also wanted a random chance to spawn other things, like fire, smoke, electrical arcs, and what-not. The script I created uses a “chance” variable for calculating the odds in which a special “additional” effect would spawn.

For the art, I have these big battle ships, and they have weak points for the other team to attack. However, I have no way to convey to the player that they needed to attack these points. So, I’m creating “ship components” that will flash to show they are “points of interest,” and since all you do is fly and shoot, you’ll naturally try shooting it, and it’ll explode. See? Conveyance.

More of these are likely to come. Stay tuned. I also use that channel to put up my Twitch streams, so… uhh… like and subscribe? I guess? Is that how the TubeYou works?
