Development Process

A spline path in Unity

Lots of props but only collision where necessary

Splines

All of Spelkonditoriet's games are developed in Ugnen, but we use Unity as our level editor. For this project we made the player follow a spline which we manipulated and iterated upon a lot.

Collision

Ugnen was still mid-development during this project, and so it was not yet optimized for lots of collision boxes.

A lot of my work went to optimize the levels for better framerate.

Racing up the Twisted Tower (Turning Torso)

Twisted Tower

Inspired by our local surroundings, we payed homage to the tallest scyscraper in Sweden, Turning Torso.

In a three-act structure, the game revolves around this landmark. Composition in early levels frames it as being of great importance, and subsequent levels have you racing up and down into its core.
