The Appearance of the Pin Collector

So one of the main topics on our minds lately has been the Pin Collector. Who is he, how will the pins be unlocked and at what part of the game? We've decided that he will appear randomly in a room after the player has played a certain amount: not too long, but at least a few runs so that they're familiar with the way the game works without pins added.

He will appear through a dimension rift which will happen in the midst of a room. Here's our first prototype of the scene:


Obvious use of placeholders including Marino, of course... haha!

Next, we've been playing around with adding some effects to give the impression of the pins scattering away:


This is also still a work in progress! We're not completely happy with the way the pins literally seem to "scatter like a wind" if you want. We might look into having them scatter from him more like coins from a defeated enemy; or we might keep the effect separate from his appearance altogether. In any case, the testing continues! :)
