New Dev Journal

New Dev Journal -

The Chronicles of Spellborn official site has been updated with another edition of their weekly Artistic Dev Journal. This week's topic is the art of the user interface.

I'll first take this opportunity to introduce myself - my name is Niel Vredeveldt. I have been working on this project from the very beginning, first as an environmental artist and now as the Interaction Designer here at TCOS. For the ones who are not familiar with the term 'interaction designer', it has a lot to do with usability. I try to make the game more user-friendly. As you can imagine, the main tool through which people interact with the game mostly is the User interface. It's a daunting task to make navigating TCOS a pleasant experience for everyone and creating the actual GUI consumes most of my time. I also work on the movement system, the combat system, player controls and all other combat feedback.

In this little article I'll try to explain one of the game parts I am responsible for here at Spellborn: this is all user interface art.
