Idol Hands – Tech Update (April 2015)

 
AprilIUpdate01

For the last month, the team apart from working on updates has also been working on some cool stuff. One of the interns in our office, James has been working alongside me to work on new shader techniques to support DX11. When we started off with Idol Hands, we were using Unity 3.5, however as Unity changed versions the graphics architecture also changed. Since we had written most of shaders ourselves (and not the inbuilt ones) upgrading to the new shader techniques was necessary. So in the upcoming months, the visual effects that you will be see in the game will have DX11 support.
Another of our team members, Nikhil has been working on procedural terrain generation. This feature would help us easily create multiple levels and add more content to the game. read more
