Total Dev Time:
Baby Legs is an arcade-like game on the HTC Vive where the player stomps on ants. The player takes the role of a father as they protect their baby while they're walking for the first time. The game has the player wear Vive sensors on their ankles to represent their feet in-game and use a remote to brush ants off their baby.

Ideation | Feedback & Iteration
Every BVW project comes with a forced constraint.
For this project we had the constraint of the player having to help a character A overcome/avoid character B's fear. For this project, I provided the game's main concept.
After Interim presentations, we're given suggestions about our main gameplay, which made us go back to the drawing board about some features.
Sound Design | Music Composition | Vocal Recording & Treatment
For this project I was going for a more laid back and comedic style given the artstyle we had going for the game. The game's soundtrack was composed in FL Studio.
In this class we are given a sound library for use of our base sounds. For this project, I went for layering synths and a multitude of library sounds to make stepping on something not only sound realistic, but also like an arcade game. Filters were added to the baby sounds.
Vocal Recording and Treatment:
For this project, I had a friend of mine improvise many of the lines we used for the mother character. I also directed him when it came to outline specific instruction voice-over lines. All the voice-over was clipped, balanced, edited, and filtered in Audacity. The voice-over work was done by my friend Tyler Thompson, (his work is here).
