Anyways, with our laptops at the ready, we got down to work. I think every member of JAVAK has had their frustrating moments, and today saw plenty of them, but I have to say, I couldn't be working with a more determined group of people. Whether it be debugging, or software glitches, or lost files, we’ve managed to keep the momentum going, and the game is really coming along!
First up, The CAD Team.
Kiana was hard at work on the GUI for the tutorials, which is becoming increasingly more awesome as the days go by. She added the two tutorials that I made today, added a playback function for the videos, and fixed a problem we were having with the quality of the videos when they were uploaded to Unity. She also worked on some of the functions in the GUI, including one that checks whether a player’s answer is correct. I’m constantly in awe at how much this girl manages to get done, MVP over here.
Next, Graphics, with Ashley and Jenny
And of course, Player Controls, with Arun.
Arun has been putting a lot of the pieces together and is constantly working to ensure that the game will run smoothly. Today he finished the walls of the first level, including an air duct system. He’s also working on the menu screen for the game and putting the models that have been created so far into the first level.
Hopefully by the end of the week we’ll have combined what we have so far and incorporated Kiana’s GUI into the rest of the game. It looks like everything is starting to come together, and we're looking forward to meeting up at Autodesk tomorrow, where a large box of Sour Patch Kids awaits our return.
And of course, the traditionally daily selfie.
