We were at a loss for what to do at the start of this project. We spent the first 5 or 6 hours contemplating and trying out different ideas. Eventually we decided to make a game. Inspired by a video of the Warcraft 3 mod Warlocks we decided to make a Side-on wizard duelling.
What it does
The game allows multiple people to connect and battle wizards. The aim of the game is to knock your opponents of the platform. You can move left and right using A and D, and you can jump using W. You can fire a spell using by clicking. Spells will fire towards the mouse position. Spells send any opponents that are hit by it flying back. You can charge up a spell by holding down the mouse button. The more charged a spell is the more it will knock your opponents back. The platform that you are duelling on is gradually crumbling away making it harder and harder to stay on.
How I built it
We built it in the Unity game engine using their 2D tools. The graphics we all created in Photoshop.
Challenges I ran into
Deciding on a project was an initial challenge. Learning how to use Unity took a while however once we got the hang of it we made quite good progress.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making a fun game in 24 hours
What I learned
We learned how to make 2D games using Unity.
