Randomized Characters

Handful features 180 different character combinations:

  • 3 different skin tones
  • 4 different shirt colors
  • 5 different hairstyles
  • 3 different hair colors

Which combined with headgear:

  • 8 different hats
  • 6 different helmets


Which gives us a total of 2,520 different character appearances.

Deformable Terrain

To create the deformable terrain I created a snow material using render targets. A SceneCapture component attached to cameras transform creates a snapshot of the game environment from below every frame in a 2048x2048 square. The render target texture is then used as a mask for the world displacement and color lerp in the snow material.

Power-Ups

Hats and helmets act as extra lives. Once hit by a snowball the player loses their headgear. And will be knocked out by the next snowball that hits them.

When a player is knocked out they ragdoll and start making snow angels
