I finished the prototype of the endless runner! I’m super excited. I even made a quick video of the basic functionality and a couple of power-ups you can pick up as you run. I thought it was going to take me a few more weeks but I got so excited I dropped all my other projects and finished this one. My next step I think will be to port it to my Oculus headset and see how dizzy I get.

As I moved through the tutorials, I got better oriented in UE4, being able to predict what the instructor was going to do, and eventually doing it myself first and checking afterward to see if I got it right. There’s definitely something nice about not having to worry about possible syntax bugs on every line. I also changed some of the default assets and music so it had a slightly different feel.
