Rocket Builder Prototype

This Rocket Builder Prototype is something I’ve been playing with. Inspired by Kerbal Space Program and my kids interest in Bad Piggies’s sandbox mode, I built a quick prototype for testing. When I showed my kids its was a hit, and I’ve never experienced better motivation.

This prototype was built in Unity 3.5 and works on Android, PC and web. I used Unity’s built in physics of rigid bodies and joints for the parts which I think works great.  I’m aware of a number of bugs or strange behavior, and the interface needs work, but it is a prototype after all.

There is still a lot I want to do with this, and my kids have more ideas too. Hopefully I can get back to it in the near future.

If you have any ideas or comments, or a cool design you want to share, send me a note!
