My work

I did programming on this project and almost did not do any Game-Design. I only helped to quickly solve the essential Design questions : 3C, winning and losing conditions. I also was often asking questions to the team to ensure that everyone had the same vision.


Programming


I developped the NPC : warmth progression, their corresponding state and animation, decision system beteween each task (chopping wood, gathering wood, bringing it to the fireplace.
I also helped to include some sprites, animations and sound effects.
And finealy I added the most important feature of the game : petting the dog

Once the jam was over, I worked to finish the non-working features and add ones we planned but didn't have time to implement. Therefore in a week I added :

  • Blizzard storm system
  • Integrated corresponding animations
  • Fixed ALOT of bugs
  • Added a 2D pathfinding system for the player's and NPC's movement
  • Updated the game-loop to enable multiple levels and the end-game screen
  • Updated the fire gathering and distribution system
    • Deleted the old simple trigger-enter system
    • Added a new click target system
