Pixelscopic

Early on in my time at Pixelscopic in between bouts of Moshi Monsters, the team worked on an idea for a fast-paced, mobile dungeon crawler. The idea centered around building a team via recruits from various guilds before each encounter. Once they’d began a crawl players would swipe sideways to attack or up and down to reposition, expending a refilling action bar for each character in real-time.

My portion of development and brainstorming time was spent working on useful, cool, and class-appropriate ability ideas and balancing for each of the character types we had in mind. You can view the entire sheet in its last-edited form via this link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1x3hxMT9ve7Cwo4nuanOQDreKaCG3UbPCG0WU-2PLKgs/edit?usp=sharing. I also worked on a number of gameplay UI wireframes and mockups to establish functionality and visual style.

Progression of wireframe UI ideas for core gameplay. Here, I'm primarily dealing with the size and positioning of the character stats displayed during a quest.
A slightly higher-fidelity mockup I created to feel out the visual style of the in-game UI, with stub artwork provided by another team member.
Various high-fidelity mockups where I played around with the display of pre-quest prep data, while also developing the visual style.
Two different versions of the Options screen I created, feeling out the visual style and language for UI controls, textures, typography, etc.
