In this latest devlog i go through the game development process of adding dismemberment to my indie game Slaughter Cats in Unreal Engine 5. I'd been thinking about adding dismemberment to Slaughter Cats since i started the project but was always put off by idea of having to split apart all the meshes as i though it would take soooo long. I decided to just go ahead and do it and bite the bullet as i thought the feature would be really good with the game as it's so bloody already. I walk through the game dev steps i made in unreal engine and my thought process as i develop the dismemberment system to it's current state today.
