Chris McEntee  |  Level Designer, Ubisoft Montpellier


Location: Room 2005, West Hall

Format: Session
Track: DesignVisual Arts
Vault Recording: Video


The critically acclaimed Rayman Legends owes much of its success to the flexibility and power of the UbiArt Framework, an engine originally developed for the game's predecessor, Rayman Origins. This session will describe the design team's approach to creating the distinctive worlds in Rayman Legends, and the strengths and weaknesses of this unique tool. The engine's role in improving prototyping and level design pre-production processes will be demonstrated through case studies, and multiple in-engine demonstration videos will showcase a few of the key features that allow designers to work at a rapid pace.

Takeaway

Understanding the variety of methods available for quickly prototyping and iterating gameplay elements and situations within the 2D UbiArt Framework engine.

Intended Audience

Designers and artists interested in the prototyping and pre-production processes for creating gameplay elements and level design situations.
