Currently I’m using Unity, Spine and C#.b957a4_72750aea3103432e96a4853419a6544f


What hurdles did you have making your current game?

I think the biggest hurdle is the camera view. I wanted to achieve the traditional 2D look but we still needed a little bit 3D perspective feeling. I used the perspective camera instead of the orthographic camera. The problem showed up immediately when you moved the camera up and down. All the layers looked very off. I had to take a lot of time adjusting the position of the camera or changing the game objects etc. Also, after drawing so many game scenes, sometimes I doubted if it was the right art style I was looking for.ggp2
