I finished the death effects for the character in my mobile game. The result wound up being pretty hysterical, especially once I added in the sounds.

I’m definitely planning to play that up as much as I can, and try to spread that theme through the rest of the game. It might be hard to see in the video, but I was even able to make the eyes turn into Xs and have the tongue stick out.
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to have the ragdolling in there for fun, but the effects I tacked on afterwards turned out to be at least as interesting.
From here I’m going to continue working on the sounds, and after that I need to figure out a similarly interesting effect for when you eat fireflies.
I thought about making the fireflies scream in cute little voices when you get close, but that might be a bit much. I’m sure as hell trying it out regardless.
