Don’t forget the details!

As we chug along with development of Shrimp Magicality, we’re getting to the part where we’re beginning to wrap up the major gameplay mechanics and level design, and starting to hit up the smaller and finer details that really polish a game and make it feel both ‘alive’ and ‘like a game’. This balance is important even if it seems contradictory or even antithetical to the type of experience you want to make, but for certain projects that balance definitely pays off. 

In this case, iconography that tells the player what to do where is something that we decided is super important to establish a precedent of where you can do and what you can do , and to communicate to the player what’s worthwhile to explore. Not wasting the player’s time is something that we consider vital. To that end, details matter.

More to come!
