Belgian developer Pixel Beam, operating from China, is about to release their first game on Steam Early Access: multiplayer first person shooter (FPS) Storm United. Each week leading up to the launch Pixel Beam will upload a video about the development of the game.
The first video shows the multiplayer character animation controller. When you develop an animation controller for a multiplayer FPS you have to take a series of decisions that will eventually decide weather or not it is going to be easy to make changes in the future or if you will be able to reuse your efforts conveniently on other characters or with other weapons. Having a strong desire to include new characters and a lot of weapons over time, the reusability and flexibility of the tools were crucial for Pixel Beam.
