      Well at least you'll be able to play it with the friends you may or may not have 1-2 years from now when the pandemic finally ends

      @Light yeah steam remote play is made for those kind of games. Basically the game runs on one players computer and the both players control it. Kind of like two players using the same keyboard, one with the arrow keys and one with WASD

      @Benjamin Newington It's the opposite for me, steam remote play is laggy as hell but Parsec works really well.

      @Benjamin Newington wait but the game isn’t run on a local server, it’s just a straight local game

      @Meta Czech Thanks! Still I think it I could use a tutorial to know not only how to do ir, but also when.. common problems, etc. Brackeys probably can explain it really clearly :)

    • Meta Czech

      Use SceneManager functions LoadSceneAsync(...) and UnloadSceneAsync(...) to add/remove another Scene into the current one.

      His old tutorials are good, but they don't teach you everything. Like OOP as one example. I highly recommend you watch one of those full length tutorials that are like 5 hours long. It's worth it. Good luck! :)

    It's weird that an Unreal-based product is using this video as an advert when the channel is all about promoting and tutoring for its main competitor..

      Exactly, infiltrating on "Unity-Contamined Videos" is the greatest way to Core make those "Unity-Contamined Videos" "Unity Core-Infiltrated Videos", for you to poke out about Core. Core IQ: Over 9000.

    • SneakySam656
      SneakySam656 2 years ago +1

      Well those who are using Unity probably aren’t using Unreal so they’re getting a good demographic with people who probably don’t have it already

    What an awesome and polished game! It must be a blessing for you to get to make a little game every once in á while between all these beginner tutorials. The results really speak for themselves, an your skills in various disciplines, I like it!

  • 9Suna9
    9Suna9 2 years ago +1

    Great job on the game!
    I would love to see a breakdown of that bullet/player VFX, as it has a real visual 'oomph' and looks like it could be tweaked for other uses.
    Also, the cubes around the map (the crowd?) would be a great use case for DOTS - it can work completely separately from the rest of the game, does one, very simple thing (move up and down according to a sine), and does that one thing a _lot_. And collision could just be made with normal invisible colliders. Not really relevant to a submitted game jam game, but just a thought.
