I am a huge fan of Golden Ruby‘s games and Hermit Crab in Space (http://goldenrubygames.com/games/hermit-crab-in-space) has always been in the back of my mind since I first played it. So last night I started testing out what it would be like to build a modular space ship engine inside of unity. Here is my first test ship.
It’s not much to look at right now but the ship is made up of separate “parts” that can be fitted together (by hand right now) to make a fully flying ship.
Also Each of the parts can be configured to use a key so when you press that key, all the parts with the same key value will fire.
Having a lot of fun with this one and glad to finally be doing something that’s isn’t just a port of one of my older HTML5 games. We’ll see how far I get with this one.
