4th Prototype

This is my fourth prototype and my first in Unity!

I have created my first protoype in Unity. The scene illustrates a ridge on a mountain where the player will have to navigate between rocks and the edges in order to avoid the enemy soldiers and finally get to The Chest of Knowledge that the player has been searching for. The player is illustrated by a cylindrical character while the enenmy soldiers are illustrated a s capsules. The Chest of Knowledge is portrayed as a floating sphere at the end of the scene.

I had some issues with the main character where it would fly straight up in the air as soon as the game was started. Unfortunately, I didn't get to solve this before the deadline, so that is one point that will be corrected for the next prototype. Also, movement of the enemy soldiers along with a detection pattern will be implemented.

The above mentioned means that my first Unity prototype is not playable as such, but it should work to give an idea of where the game is heading.

Have fun reviewing!

3rd Prototype

This is my third prototype of The Modern Warrior.

In this prototype I have included motion for the enemy warriors. Some of the motion is activated when the scene is created, other is triggered by the player entering a specific region in the scene. It is super important for the player to sneak around the guards this time. If he gets too close and gets compromised he will have to start the level all over.

Have fun!

Game Minute

This is my Game Minute for The Modern Warrior.

I will here describe one minute of a scene in my game The Modern Warrior. The description will be thorough and include every little detail of what happens in the game.


The player is controlling our head actor which is a ninja warrior. The ninja warrior moves forward and sees a ledge above him that he decides to move under. A bit further ahead he sees a deep fall in front of him and realises that he will not be able to cross it. He bactracks to the ledge and climbs up on it. From here he can see an enemy warrior a bit further ahead. He also notices some ledges above him which is separated by a space of air. His mission is to be as stealth and silent a possible, so he decides to jump up on the ledges and try to avoid an encounter with the enemy warrior. As he jumps over the enemy and over to the last ledge, he watches the enemy warrior and realises that he is not following him. He then jumps down from the ledge to solid ground and continues forward. He sees another ledge in front and above him and jumps up on it. From here he can see an additional enemy warrior. The enemy warrior is moving back and forth on a separate ledge. The ninja warrior notice a piece of paper lying on the far end of the ledge. Above him is another ledge which he crawls up upon. He walks to the other end of the ledge and wait for the enemy warrior to walk to the other end before jumping down and retrieving the piece of paper. He quickly sees another ledge a bit further ahead and decides to jump there. He is now safe from the second enemy warrior and have time to further explore the paper. It is a note where the Chest the ninja warrior is searching for is mentioned. It also mentions another location which is where the ninja warrior decides to head towards. He moves forward and the stage fades out and when it fades in again he is at the new location.

Revised Game Focus!

This is my revised Game Focus for The Modern Warrior.

The Modern Warrior

The players experience will revolve around a ninja warriors search for the Chest of Knowledge which was stolen from his clan by a mighty warlord. The player will interact with the game world by various enemy encounters, solving puzzles, moving objects around and more in order to follow in the footsteps of the warlord and infiltrate various locations to recover the stolen Chest. 

2nd Prototype!

My second pototype!

I have added motion to some of the enemy actors (it still needs to be tweaked in order to function correctly).

The idea is to sneak the player past the enemy guards that are placed around the level. If you get too close you might get spotted and have to start all over.
