Hi Everyone, meet Bruffles. He's the first NPC character being developed for @linethegame. How did we arrive at this design & how will we get him in-game? Well, gather 'round & watch this thread as I detail the whole process. (Bruffles concept by the amazing @FromHappyRock) For development, Bruffles is being used as a target for look development & animation/character exploration. At his core he teaches the player how to hill-slide, since that's his favorite way of moving through the world. He also allows us to explore how diverse our designs can be.

I've been conducting a lot of interviews lately and want to share some feedback/advice for anyone going into an interview soon. #gamedev 1. Check your ego at the door. Its better to be humble & introspective about your past work than to flaunt what things you've accomplished.
