It’s been quite some time since our last update, that’s because we’ve been doing much programming on stuff like dinosaur and level unlock system, scene loading, etc. One of the things we’ve been working on is the character selection system. As mentioned in the game’s description, preparation is a very crucial aspect in order to help the player’s selected dinosaur survive. We wanted to make sure that the character selection is able to give a clear information about the selected dinosaur without having the screen be covered in numbers and stats.
So here’s what we’ve come up with so far
As seen above, we mainly used icons to give out information and we also grouped information that represent a certain aspect together, which make things a lot easier to find. For example, the top-left represents the selected dinosaur’s survival parameters like hunger and thirst stamina, while the middle-left represents the selected dinosaur’s base stats like attack damage, speed, armor, health, etc. Each icon can also be highlighted, which would give out a more detailed information.
Because of this, the character selection is not only a place for selecting dinosaurs, but also a place to review and prepare the selected dinosaur for the challenges to come.
More updates coming soon!
