A Little Big Adventure 2 / Twinsen's Odyssey reimplementation in Typescript / Three.js / React
Live demo (or Editor mode)
Vision / goals
Phase 1: Reimplement the LBA2 game engine
- Should look and play like the original
- Full re-engineering instead of dissassembly-based approach
- Focus on code quality, make it easy to read and modify
Phase 2: Make a HD version of the game
- Improve graphics and gameplay in a way that preserves the original look & feel
- More of a remastered version than a remake
- Support more platforms and ways of playing (ex: VR & Mobile)
Phase 3: Become a platform for modding and action/adventure game development
- Progressively add tools to the editor to support mods
- Have all tools grouped in a single integrated platform
Currently you can walk around every island and buildings of the original game.
Most of the graphic elements are implemented and part of the gameplay. It is not however completable at this point.
The editor mode allows navigating around the game scenes, inspecting scene content and variables, inspecting the game engine internal variables and debugging scripts (you can set breakpoints on actor scripts).
