In the last weeks of production, I am finally wrapping up the tutorial sequence. Two tools I can show that were made for the tutorial, are the speech system, and the dummy minions.
The speech system takes in text, and animates a frame animation to go along at the same speed. If players hold the A button, the text speed will double.
The scarecrows are used as practice targets for players in parts of the tutorial. We re-used the old model, put a pole up its butt, added some hay cards, and did a blend animation for multi-directional punch reactions.
Tutorial should be done soon in full sequence!
