What's the Toy Box?
The Toy Box is a sandbox mode included in all Disney Infinity titles. The Toy Box team consisted of 8 artists who created assets that looked like tangible toys made of plastic, textiles, etc. These assets also had to adhere to the established visual language of the Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and Disney properties. Most assets and textures had to be modular, tileable, and interchangeable. They followed strict metrics and technical limitations to ensure that players had plenty of resources to let their imaginations go wild!
Toy Box Interiors
The Disney Infinity "INteriors" were a system of modular rooms in which players could customize their wallpapers, floors, ceilings, and place decor. I created property-based interior asses that worked with the established interior grid system.
Animated & Interactive Assets
Sometimes the assets in the Toy Box needed a little extra oomph. I often created simple animations and added functionality to assets using Maya and a proprietary node-based scripting program.
