TALK: Using Hexels and Unity for Level Generation in Quench

In a puzzle game all about controlling the environment, what’s the best way to simulate water physics? What if the studio is new to game development and the level editors are all artists?

Join Tabby and Jeff Rose as they discuss their solution to this challenging design problem – they used a combination of the indie art tool Hexels, and the Unity game engine to get the job done, and made it so level editors could paint levels into existence!
