Rivals Devlog 3 - Diving

Hey yall, still hard at work on the next version of Rivals, which is something I'm hoping to officially announce in the near future! In the meantime, I wanted to show a glimpse of some of the small improvements in the game as development continues on. If you checked out the playtest version, I'm starting to update and replace the temp animations that are in there now. One of the first areas I looked at was the diving animation, which was shared across all states. Now I've split it into multiple versions, giving unique animations to ball carriers, receivers, and defenders:

I think the additional verticality they bring helps them feel way more dynamic than before. Plus a little camera shake on the hits adds a bit of oomph! You can see all of them in action here:
