Development Details

For this piece of work we was given a finished game and a game backstory that we would have to design a mission and a level for.

Initially I made a mood board of different areas that I could create my level in a eventually decided upon the Brazilian Favela Idea. After this I expanded my initial mood boards to cover more areas than just setting – I started looking at architecture, layouts, lighting et cetera…

After this I then moved onto my plan. Initially I planned out what I wanted to make in the favela (a housing area and a military factory), I then decided what story I would go for and how it would fit into the level that I was planning to create.

Next I began to learn how to use the systems that were built into the game such as spawning and other events, then I started to build out the level by using height maps from real life to create realistic landscapes. Following this I then began fleshing out the world and creating buildings, and crafting gameplay experiences using blueprints.

Following this I kept iterating upon my work over and over and adding new and more interesting areas to the level(s). Eventually I reached a point where I was close the the hand in date and I was also happy with the outcome of the project. There was some areas which I wanted to improve on, however they would not have been feasible as there was other work to be done at the same time on this and other projects.
