Procedural Design: For now game has one map with seven different levels. For making game play more interesting I introduced procedural leve generation. According to requested difficulty degree, same level can be designed in procedural way, which means in each play create one unique platform. I am quite surprised in procedural design game can generate quite nice combination sometimes even better than manually designed ones!

Platforms,ladders, machines and gaps between assets are placed according to difficulty level+ random probability till desired length or number of component has been reached. In future versions, random enemies or animated objects will be introduced to procedural level generation script.

Future improvements:

Optimisation:  is  quite an issue now.  Main reason is using dynamic un-bakable light which I believe contributes game atmosphere a lot. Current release of game needs strong workstation !

Level End: First idea was completing levels ends with mechanical puzzles. I have some variation which is not pleasing enough. Also I am planning to introduce animatronics bosses at level ends.

General polishing on texturing, lighting and background mechanisms

Game is planned to be released in fall/2017. You can follow the development of game by:
