I want to catch up on a couple things we went over in last week’s dev stream. We spent the stream gathering name suggestions on the possum and going over story scene setup. Here were the team’s favorite Possum names, and we’ll hopefully have one picked and cleared in the next couple of weeks!
This Friday’s stream is going to be another music one with Alex, by the way, so if you’re musically inclined then prepare yourselves!
So on the stream we were talking about how the story scenes had a camera that panned over each panel. We made some revisions this week based on some feedback, and now the panning is much snappier, with each panel dropping in on the player’s action. It lets the player control the pace of how they look through the story, and the drop-ins felt more fitting with the paper post-it style.
In other news, here’s some of Denae’s animation work on Esteban
