The snow was coming down pretty hard this morning and I ended up losing of day of work and gaining a day of Optera time. The office is feeling pretty cozy.
I’m still in animation mode and starting to play with the sting/spray action.
Now even though this is only the sketch that the real animation will go over top of I cant help but wonder if its its too cartoonish. I bet there are a few ant enthusiasts out there that might not think its realistic enough with the whole bulging gaster exploding butt thing but I have a feeling when it comes down to gameplay, the more expressive animations will help create that positive feedback for the players actions. At least that’s what I’m hoping.
Let me know what you think! For now I’ll just get some more hot chocolate going and get back to work…
