Working at Defrost Games

For the last couple of months I have been working at the indie game company Defrost Games. Been having a great time and been allowed to do some pretty neat stuff. Been playing around with pretty much everything in the game and the tools. I even got to fix some bugs in the time mechanics. Just recently I got to create straight up from nothing an algorithm that would let the artists place props in the level editor and then the level editor got to cut out the props geometry from the navigation mesh for the character. That was pretty cool, first I had to create everything that was needed in order to cut in the nav mesh that previously was made by artists in Maya. By that point it was using the geometry of the object but that won’t work since they are too highly detailed and it would result in a poor-performance navigation mesh with way too many triangles. So I had to come up with a way to optimize that as well.

Navigation mesh

Red lines are the navigation mesh and the blue represents the cut out area.

Yeah I’ve been having a blast at Defrost Games. I can’t wait till the game is released so I can brag about what I’ve worked on. Even though most of my stuff is not even directly visible. But most often it’s those things that are hard to do and interesting to make.

    I do trust all the concepts you’ve offered to your post.

    They’re very convincing and will definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies.
    May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.
