Stickman Sports concept

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Share this project:

In this game, this goal was going to be to perform simple sports activities with this stickman, except you have to control almost every joint of the stickman, making simple tasks like walking difficult. The problem is it's way too difficult as it is now, I can't get him to even make normal steps without falling over, and I don't know how to make the game easier without making it too easy or losing the original concept of the game. I also don't think I even find it very fun. This has made me appreciate how our brains can make us walk without really thinking about it 😝

Each slider controls one joint of his body (only around the legs). For now you can also pick him up and drag him around, as well as that random pink thing if you want to whack him with it.

Anyway I'd like to know what you think, I might try to make another game for the Sports2020 challenge unless I can figure out what to do with this project.

One day I'll figure out how to walk... 😅

Maybe you could do something along the lines of making joints “lock in place” when you release the slider. It would take away from the whole physics aspect you have going, but could make the game much more inuitive.

I can actually get him to stand up pretty fast. Takes some skill to get used to. What i had imagined for this type of movement is actually a tight rope walker. The goal is to keep him upright and walk through the line with a timer on who can get across the fastest. Just an idea. As far as movement. I think trying to keep it at 2 sliders would be much easier for people to grasp. A slider to control the top half and 1 to control the bottom half. As you slide forward it already performs the walk animation but the top slider is to pivot the balance.

Ah this is pretty cool! It gives me QWOP vibes haha. As it is now it’s a bit too hard to pull off anything, maybe just one slider for each leg could simplify it. And then maybe have sliders for the arms too? Depends on the sport, I guess. There’s the basis for a fun game here!

I tried to do one slider for the whole leg, but I don't really know how to make that work, to control the knee too.
