Made a Marble Run


#1

I used to love making marble runs, but then we got cats, and cats and marble runs cannot peacefully coexist in an apartment.

But now I have a Looking Glass and Unity! This was so much fun - I don’t understand why everybody isn’t just making marble runs all the time. It really needs sound design, but that’s a big job I’m putting off!

It doesn’t come across so well in a video - the marbles are small. So here’s a link to the executable:

I like this one, great work!
For some reason, I got some intense nostalgia from this, it has a sort of “The Incredible Machine”-vibe to it.

Thanks! I’m glad you enjoy it. I find it completely hypnotic to watch the marbles go around and around…

I had a great time making it, and of course I’ve continued to tinker. I’ll post a new version if I get around to the audio. I think if I can get that right it would add a lot.
