Gobble trouble were an adventure I won't soon forget. Practicing my modelling, level design and SFX skills were super fun.
We all knew we wanted to make a hectic party game, at the time I didn't know scripting, but Joshua wanted to try and push his scripting and GFX and Hussein were interested in doing randomization and generation of environments.
So we had a gap in the modelling part, and since we had used most of our first year at TGA I decided to take on the challenge.

Gobble trouble were interesting from a Level Design perspective since we'd randomize the environment with curves in the editor made by Hussein until we found one that fit us well. From there on in, we would tweak the section to our liking, adding in gameplay elements that we designed together, like jump pads, tree's, volcano's, pitons, rubber ducks, ect.
The sections would then be randomly generated according to a difficulty, so you would never get a volcano in your first 5 sections for example. This allowed us to curved the difficulty for new players, while letting the late game get interesting and never predictable.
