This month we took on a new developer, Sunrise Wang. To welcome him into the company we took some time off and did a game jam. It’s a VR game where you play as the sun and through manipulating the climates of the planets orbiting you, create environments conducive to life growth. There are 4 planets, each controlling a layer of music which plays once life has spawned.
We wanted to learn a bit more about shaders while making this game. One of them was a planet shader; a normal map and color to drive the way ground looks. Then a heightmap to manage the sea level.
