Players 1-4 use controller D-Pad, Player 5 shares a controller with one of the other players
This week we decided to focus on sprites and create a grid to move them around in. We split into teams this week: artists and coders. The coders focused on creating a working grid while the artists took to the whiteboard to create 5 characters which were then photographed and redrawn in Photoshop and Illustrator before being placed into the grid.
Because you can only have 4 controllers connected in Unity, the fifth player shares a controller with another player. We had a lot of fun testing our sprites by playing a game of try to block the unicorn .
Edit: This grid code was the precursor to our Puzzle-Making night here a few weeks later.
The code is available here on the GitHub repository. Feel free to download, experiment with making changes, learning how it works. And we’d love to see what you come up with.
