The 2017 Game Developers Conference is coming up fast, so today we want to quickly highlight one of the many great talks taking place at the show: a design session from a designer and artist on Dinosaur Polo Club's striking Mini Metro!
In his GDC 2017 Design track talk on "'Mini Metro': When Less Is More", Dinosaur Polo Club's Jamie Churchman will take a look at the successes and failures of visual design in 'Mini Metro'.
This talk is notable because it will examine how user interface and visual design decisions play a role in creating a rewarding experience for the player. It will also share how you can support this by building a robust design language, design beauty through a process of elimination, and produce a captivating experience for your players.
So make sure you check it out -- you'll likely leave with an understanding that less is more, how you can support a rewarding game experience through UX/UI design decisions, about the visual design journey of Mini Metro, and what can be learnt from this.
