Example text

When planning characters, try to come up with ideas for the character’s family, background, tastes, political and religious beliefs, and possibly even more personal/risqué parts of what makes them who they are. Although the written part of character creation seems unrelated to the art portion, the character’s look can depend greatly on personal preferences established in your text. A character’s animation may eventually be impacted by this information, as the way he or she moves and reacts will be determined by personality traits.

Likewise in games, the camera is the eye of the player in the game world, and its relation to the player character determines whether the game is a first-person, third-person, top-down, side-scrolling, or some other style of game. Interacting with 3D Models To manipulate meshes and their vertices, edges and faces, lights, and cameras, use their 3D programs’ transformation tools. These tools usually take three forms: translate (move), rotate, and scale. These tools change an object’s position on the xyz coordinate plane.

The “big name” choices include the Unreal Engine, CryENGINE, and Source Engine, though many studios elect to create their own tool sets. The important thing to remember when choosing and working with a game engine is that it should fit the skills you have and the scale of your project. It does not make sense to give yourself a headache with a 3D engine when your project will look just fine in a 2D engine like Game Editor or FlatRedBall. Game engines vary greatly. Some are more focused on scripting and others are largely WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) art-based interfaces that show you what your game will look like as you design.
