Upgrade animations…

This week I worked on some animations for the leveling system.

Zombox will feature 50 possible character upgrades that can be earned as you gain XP. The upgrades themselves will include weapon/attack enhancements, fitness/stamina boosts, health bonuses, special crafting recipes, etc.

Each upgrade in the menu will be accompanied by an animation showing what it does (or what it applies to)…so those are what I’ve been working on this week. The tricky part is not only that there are 50 of them that need to be made, but also that most of them need to loop seamlessly.

Click the image below to see an animated .gif of a few of the menu animations (keep in mind that these are just rough renders from 3dsmax, and not yet integrated into the actual menus):

    @ Fadi98:

    Yes, it’s the ‘zombie camouflage’ upgrade and it prevents zombies from noticing you at a distance.

    @Steven He often said that he would make an iOS version, and that’s the reason why I’m following the dev of the game (I also own an iPad).

    And, huh, do you have a release date or release month in mind, because I’ve been waiting for this game since at least march and it looks so awesome!
