Rumble Academy

Rumble Academy

Rumble Academy is a 4 player brawler that pulls from classic titles, like Super Smash Brothers and Power Stone.

More About the Production:

I was working on Rumble Academy for about 7 month, my job was designing and building the game, while my co-worker was building the networking. While working on the gameplay I designed the basic physics system and moved onto building tools to help production and allow the designers to move specifically work on balancing and customizing player feel. We had 2 types of characters, a melee character and a magic character.
For the melee character I designed a system that allowed the designers to select a hitbox and attach an animation to it, which simulated swings of a weapon. From that point they could attach durations and timing for specific swings. This system would also allow combo's as different melee sets could be played in unison.
For the magic based characters I designed a plugin that attached to the editor. This let them create a "Magic Object" and then attach attributes, the list of attributes would allow for nearly any kind of magic object, such as timing, duration, movement effects and the such. I'll upload to the tools section soon a write-up on the tool specifically.
The game has not been released yet, but you can read more about it here: Rumble Academy
