MetaArcade Story Game

MetaArcade, a games company, wanted to develop a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' app. I worked closely with the team to develop the entire experience from wires to final designs.

 The bare bones of the app was complicated and needed detailed research. By compiling functionality examples from inside and outside the world of games I was able to determine exactly what was needed and what content we could omit.

 An example of the final screen, here a user could make a 'room' or step in their adventure. They are able to choose sound effects, music, images, and perils or rewards.

 Adding a new step in the story needed to be easy, as the demo for the game would be shown during a busy convention. I took the basic elements of the Room editor and compiled them into a single modal.
