The first part of this weekend I decided on how to approach character animation. The second part of this weekend was devoted to keyboard and touch controls.

In order to test the controls I created a test map. Watch the video to answer some of these questions:

  • Will I make it to the end in one shot?
  • Would I even upload a video where I don't?
  • And how many takes did it take?

The animations here are crude but will get the job done for a while. I was more concerned with how to do the animations over what they look like.

(P.S. 15 takes due to that tricky turn in the middle and the camera movement at the end)
