|Overview:||'Marvel's Spider-Man' presented a challenging traversal target where players enter with high expectations of functionality, fluidity, control, and presentation. In this session, Doug will provide an in depth view into how the traversal system for the game was created. The talk will focus on how the swinging mechanic was originally executed and the process through which it evolved in order to increase usability and player engagement.
