Rifle Reloading Mechanics Dissertation
Unity game + 1000 word analysis on iterations and playtesting resultsamulliganblog.wordpress.com/category/dissertation/
My final year project (dissertation) I am working on.
The objective is to turn reloading into an engaging mechanic, rather than the player waiting for the reload animation to end. I then will gain player feedback to iterate the mechanic further.
I have modeled and texture a rifle to use for my project, as well as used Unity to create a game to test out the mechanic in C#. I will then create a questionnaire and begin play testing for feedback.
