With Crosley Tower’s imminent destruction, I decided to make it in videogame sandbox form.
What it does
Crosley Crashers is a sandbox destruction game about destroying Crosley Tower, a brutalist building overlooking most of UC’s campus.
How we built it
Crosley Crashers is assembled in Unity and modeled in Maya.
Challenges we ran into
Using a lot of rigidbodies was very expensive on the processor, I built a custom sleep system which disables physics calculations of portions of the tower which are not currently being interacted with.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
While not super impressive on the outside Crosley Crashers has quite a bit going on behind the scenes to ensure a stable and reliable experience.
What we learned
Teamwork makes the dreamwork. Crosley Crashers could have been much better with more hands-on deck. In the future I plan on working with a team to create the best possible project.
What's next for Crolsey Crashers
I started on some systems which would have improved Crosley Crasher’s gameplay loop, I plan on actually implementing them after the hackathon is over.
