At a glance
Myself and another designer partnered with a group of junior programmers to develop a mobile game.
The developers came to us with an idea, but we didn't love the concept. What to do?
Collaborate and find a solution everyone loves!
My co-designer and I came together to world-build and decide the visual direction. We sketched, used moodboards, and brought inspiration together to get on the same page.
A place to start
The programmers found a game template to build from and presented it to us showing photos and videos of how the base game mechanics worked.
This base was a "click-next" style game with no strategy or interest.
I created multiple options for the battle page that I sketched and then showed to potential users for feedback
Low fidelity mockups were made to send to the developers for proof of concept and implementation feasibility.
I was constrained by the coding abilities of programmers learning to code a game for the first time so it was important to assess feasibility but create the most interesting game possible
Medium fidelity mockups were made to see whether the characters fit well in the scene and to set colors
