Friday I finished my second year of the course after completing the serious game assignment mentioned in my other posts, myself and my friend lewis worked together on the assignment, lewis creating the second prototype level and textures while I was responsible for coding and animation with the new technology being used was the leap motion sensor which was used in the beginning puzzle as the players have to push shapes and align them in order to jump to the next area of the game, one player controls the movement of the player and the camera while the other uses the leap by placing their hands above the sensor and then gesturing such as punch to push the boxes and other shapes etc, this was then tested by students and assessors in a demo event on Friday, this went extremely well, with plenty of praise and quite a lot of useful, feedback the most remembered was the younger secondary school pupils suggesting change the arm colour to something to resemble iron man, this wouldn’t improve the game but would be make it look unique, while the most useful from college students was to have the begining puzzle at the end as this was the hardest to do and the other were easier, so if the level was reversed it would start easy and then increase in difficulty, but all in all everyone seemed pleased, while i did see my other classmates showing their projects, one being a press pad system where the player presses in a certain direction a ball they are controlling roll to the correct maths question, while another was using the occulus and a controller to look around the level and shoot the number to add to the target, so the projects were quite diverse. 98 more words
