Project 1: Space Shooter

A retrospect of the project

The Space Shooter is finally done…?

The project is over, or is it…?

The project is finally done! Or maybe not, I do have some ideas of what to do next, but for now it is time to wrap things up.

It took me a bit longer than expected, but there were things in real life which I definitely didn’t see coming. The worst of them was catching the COVID out of nowhere, the initial symptoms went away rather quickly, but tiredness still remains. Anyway such is life I suppose.

On the other hand, the project was mostly interesting and fun to do. I got to learn about Unity, a little bit about C# and some things about game development.

Of course there were times when I did want to flip the table out of frustration. One particular thing is quaternions and rotations in general, I think it took me a couple of hours to figure out how to get that homing missile to turn towards the target. And I’m still not sure if I’m satisfied with it…

The next step for me is to start a new and interesting project to continue on with my journey of becoming a game developer. But I will not abandon this project, I do have some ideas that I still want to try out with it.

Regardless, it has been a fun experience. Many thanks to GameDevHQ for this!
