Video Games have certainly evolved since the ages. Back in those days, people were comfortable and loved playing the two-dimensional sports game that resembles table tennis. However, nowadays, Gamers demand increasingly more mesmerizing gaming experience, one that the industry is continually seeking to meet.
Character animation is used by almost every video game today. It has become an essential element in modern entertainment software. Today, gamers find themselves in entirely accomplished CG worlds, competing in complex missions with more believable characters. This is where character animation comes into play. By creating greater affinity for the character, gamers become more engaged in the game. The uniqueness of gaming, when compared to other media, is that one does not just relate to the hero but become the hero.
As technology has become more advanced and sophisticated, game developers are using more complex characters that allow the gamer to fully connect with the game, thus giving them a mesmerizing gaming experience.
Programmers are continually looking for various ways to advance artwork so that they can fit into the allowed budget. There are new engines, new ways of exploring animations and exporting more artwork onto a disk more efficiently recently. The result is very fruitful for the gamers as they can now have more than one character on the screen at once, improved detail in scenery, additional travel beyond the world origin, and more refinement in the character itself.
Imagine if the character doesn’t care about proceeding through the levels, then why would the gamer care? When a character animator designs a character, he keeps in mind that the gamers should feel the character. They should be able to feel what the character is thinking, what are the character emotions and understand what motivations are behind their actions. The technology makes it available for greater subtleties within the character’s design and gives animators more space and time for conveying their thought and emotion through the character.
Hence, if the character animators can get your audience to empathize with a character, they will follow you and the game till the ends of the earth.
So which is your favorite character? Let us know in the comments section!
