Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I get the board from the 2d artist as a finished painting. Then I throw it in Maya and start to lay down basic shapes and project UV's from the games camera angle and then bring that into Unity.
Then, corner by corner, I flush out the details and export again to Unity checking perspective issues and clipping and such. It usually takes me about 4-5 days just for the board itself. Then I get a week or so to do all the clickables, effects and animations."[9]
