Nice to see all the roomy ideas.
And so much furniture art around as well.

The fundamentals of interior design 1: chair throwing

throwing colorful chairs into a white room

I’ve decided to build a game about arranging furniture in a room. Working title is “Table Jockeys”. The rooms and furniture will all be procedurally-generated. I’m imagining a first-person puzzle game, along the lines of Portal, Talos Principle, Antichamber, etc.

I’m using Unity, and the Procedural Toolkit which came with a neat chair generator. I had to write my own collision generator for the chairs, which basically mashes together a bunch of box colliders. I also grabbed this nice smooth mouselook script from the Unity wiki.

I’m gonna get some sleep. Tomorrow, I’ll start generating some tables. Once I’ve got a few basic furniture types, I’ll make a grabbing/moving interface, and work on rules/puzzles for furniture arrangements.
