Here's my concept for the Miner Character Harland. It's a bit of a contrast to Jonny's concept but I felt he should be a bit more athletic and agile. Especially if he's going to be jumping and climbing around an assortment of rotating locations. Let me know what you think.

Start Menu Flow Chart

Start menu flow chart for the GDD, if anyone has any changes let me know.

Seal Doctor?

A random thought I had while watching Frozen Planet.
Some of the Sea lions had pretty impressive moustache's and they reminded me of the game characters. This is the result....

Music and Video Games

I mentioned to some of the guys last week about a radio 4 show regarding game music, have a listen below.

LBP - Spin Doctor test

Test area built in Little Big Planet to play around with rotation.
(There are a couple of bits where he flys, this is where ladders should be)

The mechanical heart, an old concept for the evil doctor.

Steam Backpack concept, trying to add steampunk elements to a normal looking guy.

Miner harness - A device attached to the player to extract adrenaline. Large spikes make it very painful for the wearer.

Mine concept

A work in progress concept of a mine section.

Level designs

The above diagram shows a simple puzzle using the games rotation mechanic. Each step above shows how the player must move to stay alive and escape. The green stuff is a lethal liquid, the red dot is a button which will drain the liquid.
