《Drifting》is a third-person shooter-action game. The combat system revolves around air-to-ground, air-to-air shooting and traversing. Each encounter in the game challenges the player to develop a situational awareness in 3D space, which includes constantly prioritizing your target whilst observing the surroundings to find out the key to advance to the next stage.

Shoot Charge FX
To prevent players from spamming the game's shoot mechanics, there is a cooldown timer before the protagonist can fully charge up the next round. Releasing the shoot trigger prematurely will reset the cooldown timer and put players at a huge disadvantage during intense combat.
To prevent players from accidentally releasing the shoot trigger before it is fully charged up, I've added a UI cooldown timer, audio cues, and visual effects to notify players when they are able to fire the next round - a small yet crucial piece of information - that is important to maintain players' momentum.
