Hello everybody, Troubleshooter development news has arrived!
In turn-based strategy game, designing a battle field is the factor that determine the victory. It also have to provide diverseness to users.
Providing a diverseness of map is always one of the top priorities. We have a game designer but don't have a map designer. In fact, in indie game studio, developing a game in full-fledged environment is particularly unusual.
Anyway, we have to make map as many as possible and also have to each one's work simultaneously. We thought this can not be achieved by his or her own efforts.
So we took a simple measure. That measure was ...
"Making every object into asset. Not a making a whole map."
If every object that is needed to make a map is in the asset list and if anyone can put them on the map, every team member can be a map designer. So our game designer, art director and 3D artist had started to make a assets.
At last, the time has come. Our project leader had announced.
"Everyone! stop the current work and make a map! This is contest!"
