Day 722 to Day 748: Community Input Needed on New UI

January 13, 2013

We’re Back

We trust everyone had a good Christmas and New Years.  After a great holiday season celebrating with family and friends, we are back and ready to launch WorldAlpha in the next few months.  We are in the final stages trying to get everything to come together.  It has now been 2 years since I first conceived of WorldAlpha and so it is good to see that the end of development is near, and the game is about to begin!  Also, during the break we’ve had over 10,000 people sign-up to be beta testers.

Closed Beta #3

Just before the holidays we had our 3rd closed beta.  I realized when scheduling the date that it was close to Christmas, but we still had a good response from our beta testers.  Over 170 bugs/suggestions were submitted. 

Community Input Needed on New UI

Well, we now have 2 concepts for a new UI look for WorldAlpha and we would like our community to have their say!  Please let us know what you like or don’t like about each of the 2 new concepts and helps us for the final UI for the game. Click on them to see full size.

I #2 looks the best - Will

I prefer the #1 one. The white theme and metal looking bars make it look like you're playing a space game.

#2 but with the colour scheme of #1. Actually the white of #2 makes it look empty and is kind of a turn off but the buttons and navigation seems slightly more intuitive (tough to say without actually playing). Since things can always be made to look prettier later, I would vote #2.

I prefer #2. #1 was too confusing to navigate. While neither is standing out, I think you need to rethink the navigation system if you are going with #1.

I prefer if is posible to have grapchics of 1 and button design of 2. Will be very nice :)

I think the fist one LOOKS the best. So, now answer my question. :>

I prefer Concept #1. I like have the player information right at the top. Also because I like the activity and quest tabs at the bottom.

Also like the quest and activity tabs in the bottom right and left. They would come in handy.

Hey Mike, hope your holidays were fun. I just got back from China so i can start doing stuff again :P. I prefer the first UI concept because having expandable tabs jumbled around is disorientating and the background is prettier.

UI concept #2 (both versions): too bright, seems like if glued from random designs found somewhere. Concept #1: cool, however, the icons look "strange".
