Unreal Engine 2 is a complete game development framework targeted at today's mainstream PC's, Microsoft's Xbox game console, and Sony's PlayStation 2.

General Programming

  • Unreal Engine 2 includes example content and 100% of the source code for the engine, editor, XSI/Max/Maya exporters, and the game-specific code for our internally-developed games.
  • Extensible, object-oriented C++ engine with software framework for persistence, dynamic loading of code and content, portability, debugging.
  • UnrealScript gameplay scripting language provides automatic support for metadata; garbage collection; profiling; persistence with very flexible file format backwards-compatibility; support for exposing script properties to level designers in UnrealEd; a GUI-based script debugger; and native language support for many concepts important in gameplay programming, such as dynamically scoped state machines and time-based (latent) execution of code.

Hello, indieDB Community!


Welcome to the 10th article about our in development game, Nata.


If you want to find out more about our game, check out our other articles on our indieDB page.


Today, we're here to present you our early Nata's User Experience studies. For this, we used Adobe XD to create our first prototype.



Prototype's Screens

Our prototype has a lot of different sections: options menu/setting in general, narrative/concept screens, exploration related screens, inventory screen, quest's screens and last but not least the shops + craft screens.

Since our main objective is focusing on the placement, size and readability of the UX elements (buttons, text, icons and so on), we did a simplified version of Nata's real gameplay just to test those variables.

Example of a market/shop screen:

Example of the craft screen:

Example of the quest log screen:

Flowchart:

Here it is the flowchart of our prototype. Here you can see the different connections between the various screens we've created.

Well, we reached the end of our 10th article!


Next article will be focused on Nata's spec-sheet!


See you next week!

I am a big fan of Duke Nukem 3D, not sure about doing a Duke remake, I would play it if you did. I may do a map or two from the game Blood, that is for UT2004.
