I've struggled to meet the objectives for Orb Lands. The presentation is beautiful, but the game is lacking in many ways...

I watched a great review by Previously Recorded, which parallels many of the same concerns I have about Orb Lands. I've spent several months trying to address those concerns... I'm just not good at creative aspects like that. I'm good at visual stuff, technical stuff, but terrible at writing and story telling...

I think my expectations were too ambitious. But I really want the game to have more creative elements, more surprises, more sense of accomplishment! I hope I can figure it out soon, because I'm sure the people who have been looking forward to playing the finished game are getting impatient.

Fish 5/13/2018
I used the fish textures from the previous experiment and created one large particle system that spawns fish under the water across the whole terrain.
Thanks for all the fish... 5/13/2018
I saw a neat effect on Twitter, where someone used a particle system to create a school of fish. I tried to create a similar effect in Unity...
Testing 5/12/2018
Disappointed that I still haven't been able to come up with more creative ideas for Orb Lands, but I'm often impressed by how it generates some really beautiful scenery.
