With less and less work for other classes, I've been working more and more on Lucha Megadrive.
I've been working on updating a bunch of background and UI elements - making colors work together better, making the crowd and environment feel more full, etc. There's still more that I want to change before next Tuesday (our presentation day). I'm also helping out with building and visually improving menus.
I've learned more about working in Unity in the past few weeks than I have in my entire college experience combined.
Below is the current in-game look.
I also ended up with extra time to do several bonus things I wanted to do before presentation.
First off, I made the model for our other protagonist, Nuclear Winter. The next day, I textured it, and made additional color palettes. Making Johnny Fuego taught me so much about this process, and I can now do this in less than half the time it took me fore Fuego.
I hope that by having this character ready will help show that we're ready to go on and add content to our game - doubling our cast of playable characters - before we even hit next semester.
Before next week's presentation, I have one more character based thing I'm planning on doing. We have two characters I've posted about in my blogs before, Riptide Rivera and Amp, that I'm going to make renders of. I want to be able to show these off by next Tuesday - that they're a part of the plan for next semester. These will look like the renders I had in my last update of Fuego and Winter.
I'm also going to a few concepts in for other stages that we can make, so that players aren't just fighting in the same lucha arena all the time. These are going to be a bit more difficult, since the boundaries have to have ropes or something LIKE ropes, in order to have the lucha mechanics the game needs. One idea I'm thinking of would be a ranch, and the rope could be a barbed wire fence on each side.
Last but not least, yet another thing I've been working on are our Lucha Megadrive and Team Nitro Fist logos, shown below.
