Wispy Willows

New Level Complete


No Comments

Woo!!!!!!! Just finished up the design for a new level of #WispyWillowsGame. This one caused me some especial pain. Lots and lots of unseen bugs came up during testing. I’m quite happy with the layout. All art are placeholders at the moment.

Fishes, Water and Rain


No Comments

Woohoo FISHIES! And RAIN!! MOVING WATER!!

Fishies

These are kept simple because they’re so small. The models were made in Blender and have no animation. The movement is done in Unity by script using “Random.insideUnitSphere”. Each fish uses this function to swim around random points in a sphere of a pre-determined size.

I may add waggling tails at some point… You can’t have fishies without waggling tails…

Rain

This is done via a really neat tutorial that teaches you how to take advantage of 2 particle systems working together—one to create the rain itself, and one to simulate the “splashes.” I highly recommend it for a nice raining-and-splashing effect.

Water

This is actually the same gradient color shader that is used on all objects in the game scene. The only difference is that this one allows for transparency. The “waves” or “white caps” were drawn in GIMP on a png texture, which was then added to this transparent, gradient color shader.

We would love to hear your thoughts!

Here’s a bonus screenshot in case anybody wants to use it as phone wallpaper:

Testing Color Combinations on a Low Poly Setting


No Comments

Testing Different Color CombinationsSince this game focuses a lot on aesthetics, we used https://coolors.co/ to come up with some nice color combinations that would give the eerie yet mystical vibe we’re trying to go for. All the models were made in Blender, while the shading and particle effects were done in Unity. Every single object, including the background, uses a gradient shader with directional coloring.

We love to hear your feedback. Any criticism would be greatly appreciated!
