MORE ABOUT THE GAME
WHY GRANNY ESCAPED?
The theme of the Jam was "It is not real".
Thinking of different ideas, I settled with the idea of a grandmother wishing to do more exciting things. Dreaming of robbing banks at first, I went with tropical island visiting as I did not have enough time to work on models but I owned some tropical island models.
I imagined her with some rollerblades and a walker with wheels, rolling through levels, thrown out by the player.
Physics handle was what I programmed originally, but after some playtesting, I modified it to a more common movement, closer to Golf with your Friends mechanic.
As I had no previous experience in this, I followed a few tutorials and reworked everything to match my vision of the Granny and animations. I also contacted some family to get feedback on the animations and see if I could improve my work to appeal to a broad audience.
With the will to make the game feel more organic, and in thought, the marines from Halo, I decided to add random voices occuring throughout the game. Using some random float and depending on the character speed or immobility, voicelines will appear. I wrote and acted these.
