so i had the fun job of sorting out al the particle effects in the level. having had no idea how to do them I thought that this might end up being a difficult and time consuming task, it turned out that it was super easy.
after working out it for a night i managed to get a rough fire, which was super exciting. from here i started making smoke, fire sparks and loads of other things. it turned out that most of the work i had to do was making sprites which didn't take too long. i ended up making sprites for leaves, fire, smoke. glowy things, flies, rain drops
even though the particles effects were pretty easy to put together i think they've added a lot of life and movement to the level.
