Now that I can control my characters I started working on the mission success conditions. If the Kingpin manages to escape, the mission fails. If the soldiers together with the Kingpin reach the extraction zone, the mission is a success.
So I added regions to the level grid:
- the extraction zone
- two escape areas
And then I just set out to do some manual testing: if I walk the Kingpin into one of the escape areas the mission fails instantly. If I walk all three characters into the extraction zone the mission completes successfully.
Of course I’ll extend the conditions later on: mission should fail as soon as either the Kingpin or both soldiers die, and success is only possible if the Kingpin is actually captured.
Killing is something for in a couple of weeks, but I hope to get the captured state done in the next week or so. Once that’s in it’ll really start to look like a small game!
