[Technical Demo] Gravity Is Always Downward

Post by Le Codex » Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:50 pm


I come back here after quite some time with a little demo of a concept I made. Basically, everything's in the title: gravity always goes down, but the thing is that your camera follows your character, position-and-rotation-wise. I found the idea interesting and decided to give at the same time a shot at love.physics and Box2D, which greatly helped with the making of this idea :ultrahappy:. Here is a screenshot of the game, simple graphics and aesthetics as usual for me:
GIAD.PNG (8.72 KiB) Viewed 657 times
W to jump and switch between rotation and translation controls, A and D to move left and right or to rotate to the left or to the right.
(1.58 KiB) Downloaded 39 times
If you like the idea, I could make an exploration/puzzle game a bit like "cognizance" by Daniel Linssen with this physics-based mechanic.

Code: Select all

if your.timeSpeed > 0 then universe:update(dt) else universe:destroy() end
