Given our initial deadline for the Steam Racers project, the first Heads-Up Display (HUD) unfortunately served the ill fortune of lack of time and resources. Now we can proudly state that we have corrected our wrongs and are ready to present a completely new HUD that will not only communicate important events better, but also strengthen the aesthetics and athmosphere of the game.
The talented graphical designer, Steffi Degiorgio, came onboard to design and digitally draw the new HUD, which now features intricate details and steamy pipeworks. Presented in beautiful golden metal, the HUD now truly sets the scene for a Steam Punk universe and never breaks character.
We have also worked to improve the functionality and communicational features of the HUD. Vehicle upgrades are now much more visible, amount of ammunition is displayed through a gauge, the health bars have been improved to signal the right values and the player list is more clear and informative.
