Week 2

Week 2 Level Design

In week 2 I had hoped to be getting on well with this assignment, however, I am very new to games design and have never used “Unreal Engine”, the universities recommended games engine, at all and upon opening it seemed to be a very daunting task and I would need to put a lot of research into to the basics, which I found in some very helpful YouTube tutorials focussed towards beginners.  

Such as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeKDRqWtGV0&t=476s

Which went into lots of detail on basic things that you can do with unreal and was focussed at complete beginners, like myself.

And this one which I did not find quite as helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJX-TDhgaJI

During this week we also were handed the ICA for non-digital games design so I decided to get some work in on that one as well and made some good progress.
