Sushi Slaps is a Snapchat lens game made using Lens Studio. Made as part of a hackathon, I led the ideation session with the team, keeping the team focused on generating winning ideas. I then learned how to use Lens Studio, created the tentacle hand tracking and physics as well as made and animated 3D models.
What is Sushi Slaps
I organised and lead the ideation session with the hackathon team. We started with a research phase where we explored what Lens Studio could do and what competition we were up against. Then we did rapid collaborative ideation followed by a filtering round and ending with lightning demos and voting.
1. Added hand detection and assigned a tentacle model to it.
2. Tentacle has jiggly physics and interacts with the world.
3. A shop was too complicated so we decided to theme the game around a sushi restaurant instead.
4. Full gameplay loop. We adjusted the jiggle of the tentacle and improved the level design to make it easier to play. We created and added a hungry monster too.
