Adding narrative or storytelling elements to your environment goes a long way toward making your level more exciting and dynamic. It doesn’t have to be too complex, just adding a simple trap or defense system can make a significant impact on the overall feel of your environment.
Maybe the original inhabitants built these traps and are left here for centuries. Perhaps competitor factions set them up to hinder the exploration of the player.
Fortunatelly, we have a solution for this too! 😉
