Time period: 2 weeks
Team Size: 7 (4 Designers, 3 3D artists)
Engine: Unreal Engine
Role: Game Mechanic Designer & Main Menu Scripter
My focus with the main menu was to make something that reflected the silliness of the game.
I also wanted a moving menu to catch the players attention and to add more life to it.
One of the main problems I had with the harpoon cannon at the time, as I was fairly new to blueprints, was that you could shoot yourself and do damage to the player character. To temporarily solve this problem I locked the arc to 180° so it could never aim in on it self.
Later when we changed it so that the projectile recognized who fired it I could re-enable the 360° turn of it, as shown in the GIF
