The quality of a video game is often determined by how polished it is. It’s the attention to detail and the finishing touches that can make a good game great. In this article, we’ll take a look at the importance of polish in game development and how it can significantly enhance the overall experience.
We’ll use Space Rocks!, a simple Asteroids game created with the PlayCanvas game engine to showcase how even the smallest details can make a big impact.
Game juice is a design term to refer to the small visual and audio effects that are added to a game to make it feel more satisfying to play. This can include things like screen shakes, particle effects, and sound effects that are triggered when the player takes certain actions. Game juice is all about enhancing the overall feel of a game and making it more immersive and enjoyable.
Particularly, we’ll explore how game polish can be achieved through game juice.
We are very excited to release our showcase demo for Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture Studios (MRCS) volumetric video technology.
PlayCanvas now supports MRCS volumetric video with a playback library for captured footage at their studios. Watch it on desktop, mobile with AR or even in a WebXR-enabled VR headset, all from a single URL!
The library can be easily added to any PlayCanvas project and used to create fantastic immersive mixed reality experiences.
