Game Project WIP #1
I am using the Unity Engine 2021.3.18f1 to make a 2D top-down shooting game. The game will feature 1 large level to explore. The main objective of this game is exploring the area and shooting the aliens. There will be a score and timer counters to determine players’ performance.
(I also have a side idea to implement a roguelike procedurally generated level design, the idea is on the list)
This project idea is inspired by games like Returnal.
Work in Progress Report #1:
The first step was establishing a plan to build the first prototype on Unity. I have started doing the research to collect the royalty free 2D sprite files and top-down map tiles from itch.io. I was running a test to import the files on Unity and checking if all the files are functional.
The assets links:
Top-down Map tiles.
Once I had checked the essential files, I started working on the first prototype. I have created the player and added basic top-down movement mechanics. To make the 2d top-down movement much more polished and have a diagonal move, I added additional codes on the player movement script.
Here is the progress clip: https://youtu.be/CbJTBG_fo18.
My next step will be to add the shooting mechanics for the player.
