Sakurai's latest video tackles giving 'weight' to button presses
I'm really feeling it!
Sakurai is back yet again with another informative video on game development. In this particular feature, Sakurai discusses how developers can add a bit of ‘weight’ to button presses in order to better connect the player to the experience.
Sakurai also shares a personal note on this video, which we’ve included in full below.
When I was a kid, I was blown away by how I could use my hands to move things around on-screen. We play games by receiving information with our eyes and ears, then sending information back with our hands—making the feel of the controls vitally important. I always try to keep this in mind when programming, designing, or setting parameters.
