This last week I fixed some functionality bugs in my code.
I reworked the elevator code a bit.
I made the broken parts fade away.
Consecutive hitting that interrupt previous running animation.
Also for the credit scene, made all the animations and interactions, and filled up my own office.
Skinned and rigged the boss, and implemented the ragdoll.
Sorry for the lack of images, but second night in a row with no sleep.
Crunch time is over, there was still a lot of stuff we really wanted to add, but a deadline is a deadline unfortunately. All by all we are really happy with the result though, personally I really think it’s a fun game, it was a lot of fun to work on, and I learned a lot about teamwork and planning. And of course made some good friends while doing so!
So the last thing I worked on was designing the layout for the credits scene, and attaching it to the main menu scene.
And a serious number of bug fixing, and making of the trailer for our game!
What a ride it has been, I’m already wondering what our next project will be.
Thanks for following our blog,

the last few days were very intense for us we crunched through it to fix so many things, we even had to leave some stuff out to finish on time.
Some of these things are:
Boss character AI for the game as final last challenge for the player.
- A Floor based AI spawn System that deactivates Workers on different floors and spawn police with army on the player floor.
- Fixed an infinite loop that made unity crash when spawning enemies (which was also caused by my code).
- Set all the individual paths of the workers in the Main level.
Still this entire project was a great experience I learned so much about GameDevelopment by actually making a full game.
I also want to give a big shout out to my team full of amazing people. Louis, Tigo, Tom and Istvan. It was a blast to workwith you guys and I can’t wait to sleep now finally a bit.
So final week for the exams I did quite a lot.
To start with, I made the copy machine interactable. When pressing ‘E’ when next to it, a copy will come out.
I added an icon for the build.
Another thing I did was make the baseball bat breakable. Each time you hit something with the bat, health will be removed (viewable in the ammo GUI). When the bat is out of health, it shatters into pieces right in your hands!
I also implemented lots of sounds into the scene, from moving cars to background music to breaking sounds to shooting noises.
God mode is another thing I implemented, within this mode the player can fly around, teleport, doesn’t have collisions and isn’t vulnerable at all.
I did some small updates like:
- The color of the timer now changes when you’re having bonus time instead of doing a challenge.
- Enemies now give money and chaos when you kill them. The GUI is now scaleable.
- I added some more challenges like destroy a car, buy a soda and print a copy.
And last but not least I did looooooooots of patches and bug fixes.
Tomorrow is our exam so we are doing our last changes now! I did quite alot this week, starting with adding props to the 6th floor.
At the same time a also made some final models to fill up the scene more, like a watermachine, a window washer elevator, a fan, a tv and an airco.
After that I’ve spend a lot of time on modeling all my team mates. This was for our credits scene where we show what everybody did. If you click a statue you go to the room with the work of that guy.
After that I’ve made 2 rooms for that credit scene. Tom’s room;
and finally my room with all my work that I’ve done for the game!
So that’s it for the our game! We will post a build for it and tomorow is our exam so I hope it goes well!

This week I started with updating the new UI, including a new health symbol and giving the meelee weapins an icon as well when they’re equiped.
After that I finished the vending machines which were actually planned a while ago, but they’re now fully functional!
The last thing I did this was giving the player a bonus multiplier each time they finish a challenge. The time the bonus lasts depends on how many challenges the player was able to complete.
this week I implemented also the grenade so the Player can use it like the AI. I also implemented an small GameOver screen once the player dies with some buttons. Like always additionaly to that some small bugfixes here and there and some additions to the Worker BehaviourTree.
The Grenade implementation eventhough simple was in the harder than expected because I hade to make it with all the scripts affecting the player.
The GameOver script is for now very simple and not the most stunning but it is useable.
This week my job was cleaning the building!
The building has gotten a few floors less in height for performance and time limitations.
After that I cleaned up the staircase area and fixed the colors there.
When that was done I finished decorating 3 more floors, one more to go.
The boss office.
To finish up I also added a few more props/prefabs + breakable.
Crunch week is here, Let’s see how much more we can create in 7 days!
Be sure to stay updated, because things are changing quick!
This week I’ve filled the parking lot and road with props and cars. For the cars I made different textures so they have multiple colors, for the road I made more props like a road sign, barrier and lights.
I’ve also done a lot of small stuff, like making more animations, making more floor meshes and make em ready to be implemented and make buttons for the elevator to be easily handled.
The next week is the last one before our exam! So we are going to work hard and bring a lot more polishing to the game.
See you in a week!
