The process and my thoughts on the project
This is one of the project I'm the most proud of. It is super fun to play and the overall experience is great. The whole team created a really solid product from start to finish. Me and Elias blocked out enemy spawns in tiled using a bunch of patterns we had come up with earlier and included in out extensive LDD. We exported our levels to our on engine and tested them out there. We also created projectile patterns for the player and enemies.
I feel like we manage to hit the sweet spot between a challenging but fair and fun game. A great effort from the entire team. In this project I got to sit down with balancing, which I enjoy doing. To make all values work well together and justify why.
