PARADOXICAL IMAGES

New Game Concept

Paradoxical Images

PI is still unfinished today. The motivation behind such project concerned the creation of a new concept where paradoxical paths would be added to a traditional Pacman style game.

Design

IP project started by addressing game mechanics, with the creation of a game character controller to allow movement around a given paradoxical geometry.

Develop

To start with, any character would only be allowed to turn (excl. reverse) at a given corner and would be teleported at every gap so the moving looked real.

Deploy

After +- 2300 lines of JavaScript, the first prototype emerged. Idle, dead and jump animations were also implemented using Unity 3D animation tool set.

Due to geometry discontinuities, many were the problems that arose. After many thinking, I decided to break the bigger problem into smaller ones.

The geometry was divided into more than 30 layers and 4x6x7=168 triggers to handle all the collisions. After that, enemy figures and bonuses were added to the game.

Hey! Do you want to try it yourself?
