First video for peel in #ogre3d!
All interactions goes via a cross allowing 4 actions.
- If the player press the top half of the screen, he/she manipulates the top part of the tube.
- If the player press the bottom half of the screen, he/she manipulates the camera.

UVs and shading will be solved soon.
Nice. I see a little inconsistency in the UI though. The left and right arrow rotate the corresponding cube whether the cursor is in upper or lower half of the screen. While the up and down arrow manipulate the camera. It could be confusing. Maybe a different icon for up and down would make it clearer.
On the top, the bottom arrow will move the top part down to close the tube. The top arrow would be used to “bend” the tube and see top and bottom part at once. These 2 actions are not implemented yet…
On the left and right arrows, there’s a difference between top and bottom:
So, especially on the top part, top and bottom arrows will have very different behaviour then on the bottom. You were thinking about a completly different icon or an adaptation?
Top bottom arrow with an extra triangle on the bottom for instance?
I’d like to keep this as simpl as possible.
I’m also not sure on how to navigate along the tube. For instance, once the puzzle solved, how to indicate to the player that he/she can go up?
Remap of the top arrow?
Ok. The textual description is a little too complicated for me to understand. I guess I’ll see it. You’re on the right track. 🙂
