News Archive for ‘Game Making UI’
Heres a look at the early gun shop UI I have made for my latest game. I wanted it to be nice and slick with a dark feel, to try and get away from the usual cartoon style I do for this game since it's more serious. As you can see it's quite simple but came out very nice. Remember when doing UI, the simple it is the better. You want people to be able to navigate around it intuitively. I also decided to make the guns tinted white which really added to the aesthetics. There will be a few more changes to this later like adding more tabs, but at the moment it works well on the red backdrop we have.
Gone for a new type of design style to show the cutscene in Eggys Big Adventure. I always like to mix it up and try new things, this one I quite like. I put all the comic style pictures into frames and the screen scrolls through them as they float in a 3D space. Kind of like viewing an art gallery. The end result came out quite good and unique looking. Quite happy about it.
Heres the new menu drawn up for Eggy's Death Chamber. I quite like it. My favourite is the evil Eggy with his hat and moustache! Mwaha. He's gonna mock you all game. It's amazing what styled fonts can do to a simple screen to really brighten it up. REMEMBER always use custom fonts in menus. They really make it stand out and theres lots to find online.
