This week Issam has been working on the swimming controls! He tried a couple of different variations throughout the week, and we've landed on one we'd like to playtest. He also added the ability to take/give color while underwater, and worked on the collision detection while swimming (for awhile, the chameleon was getting stuck in the walls...)
Moving forward, he's going to work on ice - we're also going to start thinking a bit about how we can build a hint system.
I've been working a little bit on the narrative (so I don't really have a lot of pictures to post!) and starting to brainstorm ways we can reveal information about the world through the environment. Starting off, I do think I'm going to want to feature some of the other animals in the wall art, so I've been trying to figure out what they'll look like. The other color changing animals are White's Treefrog, the Common Octopus, the Goldenrod Crab Spider and the Arctic Fox:
I started modeling the fox. It looks pretty bizarre at this stage, but I think I can save it. ;)
