[GAUGING INTEREST] Parallax Camera Blueprint System

Parallax Camera Blueprint System

Hey everyone!

I’ve been working on a 2D Point-n-Click adventure game for the past year or so, and one of the many cool/useful pieces of tech I’ve made for it is an easy to use, plug-and-play parallax camera. Seems like there is a need for good 2D support on the Marketplace.

Features:

  1. Unlimited background layers* and easy-to-prepare layer presets: preparing a layer preset and adding background elements to a layer takes no time at all and involves a single float value and the ability to click two buttons.

  2. Clamped Character Follow: quickly set the camera to follow a particular character within clamped parameters to ensure the camera fulcrum does not exceed your play space.

  3. Farplane: set a textured plane that follows the camera, giving the illusion of great depth (the mountains in the above gif).

What the package includes at the moment:

Right now the camera is ready for widespread consumption. But does anyone want it? Let me know!

Cheers!

*Let’s be honest. Nothing is limitless. And much like Olive Garden’s Pasta, some things shouldn’t be limitless. Your processor and/or waistline won’t like it.

Looks awesome. If it’s ready, I say submit it. The work is done, and trello is as good a place as any to see if there’s interest.

Personally, though I don’t need something like this, I see it as something that many people would like to have! Nice work!
