Nice!

Just curious: How do you decide how and why zooming occurs? Invisible objects in the path? Coordinates? Items?

@erdo Thanks! :slight_smile:
And yeah based on the scene, items, invisible objects in the path, enemies position and more … it’s kinda tricky and needs lots of testing to get it right or the right position.
Also based on the scene means sometimes there is an epic moment or a cool thing in the level (like in the video) then I use zoom to show the player how cool is it or how massive it is (the level is called “Forest Of The Deep Giants” so yeah there is big stuff in this level to show the player … it adds a bit of emotion and atmosphere to the game.
.
This zooming technique is used in games like Hollow knight, Ori and the will of the wisps, etc…

Cool!
I think you should work on the contrast between the platforms and the background of the first environment.
You did it so well in the second environment.
