Developer Diaries – Kite Physics First Flight

Welcome to our developer diaries where we’ll be giving you a behind the scenes look at some of the ongoing work at Eta Carver.

For our first episode we’re simulating kite flight in Unity for a potential virtual reality experience release.  You’ll also get to see our favourite AI test bot affectionately known as “Dude” flying some of the kites.

The kites are already programmed to react correctly to different  wind directions and strength.  During testing we’ve found that watching them in the air  is a very soothing and relaxing experience.

Players can take control of a kite and relax or put it through it’s paces with spins and dives.
