in the horror game im making for a contest, i want to make a flashlight that the player can use to see in a dark room.
Topscroller or platformer?
I know I remember back when the mending was still being made you guy’s did something similar, but I don’t know if that’s what he wants.
I typically have the player emit a ray of objects and if anything touches those objects then they play a light animation. If you want a lantern effect, then have it attach an object and if any objects are near it, they play the light animation.
I made the flashlight for The Mending.
If you use my example, you can even scale the size bigger or smaller based on flashlight battery life, and make it flicker, by toggling the animation on and off
