- On the Surface: Jump and double jump, and dive to the deep. The moment during the fall increase the depth of the dive.

What have I learned?
I have learned to work with middle/long term deadline, organize and prioritize the work on the game. I have also learned how to better present my work and my games.
Programming side, I have learned a lot on unity3D and how to develop a 3rd platformer.
We worked a lot on the 3C (Character, Camera, Control) to obtain a good Game Feel. So, I have done a lot on the tweaking (speed of the character, jump and movement of the characters) of the game to achieve it. Furthermore, I did some level design on the game.
