LEADING INTERFACE DESIGN
As the environments developed in console games become ever more intricate and complex, the interface design we create needs to meet these demands in a sophisticated and intelligent manner. Reflecting these challenges, Sprung Studios has been involved in producing thoughtful and imaginative system design into games for Xbox, Playstation and Steam platforms.
We are specialists in the creation of flows and wireframes. Our process begins with exploring the layout and functionality of each game. From this we develop the UI design concepts and animations that give all our games a distinctive look and feel.
In addition, we help you to integrate our interfaces into your build using Unity, Unreal or Scaleform engines.
When it comes to interactive prototypes, we believe that every interface design we’ve created needs relevant and thorough testing. A simple click through falls far short of this.
To meet this challenge, we have developed a bespoke platform that equips us with the facility to test our interface design in an authentic way. We want to see how animated elements respond within the gameplay and assess how they behave with a real controller. We use the software to test new ideas and to check whether button patterns make sense.
One of the best features of our interactive prototypes is how they can be shared easily with our clients and sent for user testing when required.
343i/creative assembly halo wars 2
We worked closely with both Creative Assembly and 343i to create flows, wireframes and a visual style. The key was to honour what had come before, not just in the first Halo Wars game, but also the previous Halo titles. We loved working on an IP that we all enjoy and were thrilled to see the reaction that it received from the fans.
"Backed up by the UI specialists at Sprung Studios, Rare's crusading art team cracked its collective knuckles and forged ahead"
rare rare replay
As gamers, we have a special place in our hearts for Rare. The chance to work on a collection of their games from the past 30 years was an opportunity we relished. We created flows, wireframes and helped to extend the visual style. We provided all the animations in Scaleform for implementation and we were thrilled with the result.
"Sprung designed the perfect solution that was both simple and elegant. If you want to treat your players well, give sprung a call."
FUTURLAB VELOCITY 2x
Futurlab are famous for creating hard-core addictive arcade experiences and their reputation increased further when they created the sequel to Velocity. We provided support for the entire interface taking into account both touch screen (PS Vita) and controller based (PS4) and a visual style which was developed through to the logo design.
"The experts at Sprung Studios took the intricate game design of lichdom battlemage and translated it into a user interface that's accessible and engaging for players."
XAVIANT LICHDOM BATTLEMAGE
Xaviant asked us to look at the menu system of Lichdom Battleimage. In one of the more unusual briefs we have received, the visuals they had in mind were Leonardo Da Vinci’s notebooks meets Iron Man’s HUD. We helped to create a complex, yet intuitive system that would work with both keyboard/mouse or controller.
