lol yea everything is really in a "tech demo" status, no real game design yet, all experimental.

With regards to the choice-colliders, the idea is for the player to smash through the buildings.  There is no instant death, maybe some form of penalty needs to be issued.  Possibly an energy drop.  Just need to hook it all up and try it out.

When I'm not at work, I'm gonna continue working on a new enemy boat and some Joe-Fish animations.

Any ideas or suggestions are welcome as I haven't got a clue what I'm doing, and believe it or not I prefer it that way. Smiley

Maybe slowing down the player, messing up speed-runs?

It looks great!

What are your plans regarding music, and audio in general?

That's a great question, I can't settle with anything atm.  Just something exciting to match with the chaos and the speed.  I quite like the music in Star Fox 64, that fits with the thrill of weaving in and out, sharing banter over the comms with co-pilots...something gripping.

The intro got a nice adrenaline boost that puts player mind in action zone. Good design

Another awesome development adventure from an obvious talent!  The depth mechanic really opens some nice strategy / niche possibilities.

In regards to sound, I think volume and spectral changes in the sound as the player moves depth could enhance the feeling of moving on the Z and the whole immersive experience.  A sort of legible moment of audio feedback for the player to help them get their bearings and play on the depth axis. 

The player ship reminds me of the Spaceballs RV - not sure if anyone referenced that yet.

I love everything you just said thank you!





Been adding more care to the lane swapping, so if the player is too low they don't crash into the bridge environment and are placed on top of the far distance road.

Enemies can now swap lanes
