Wolf Design

The wolf was a fun task for me to work on because I had never created a four legged AI character before. We gave the wolf a charge and seize attack. It was a challenge to create an attack pattern the player would recognize and I had to work closely with sound, programming and animation to make sure that pattern was clear. The wolf had a complicated behavior, I used charts like the one below to outline the wolf’s behavior to make it clear to the team how they behave.  (Distance is in meters)
