|Session Name:||Tenacious Design and The Interface of 'Destiny'|
|Track / Format:||Visual Arts|
User Interface for a game like Destiny faces a unique challenge; how do you make it inviting and easy to digest to the newbie player, while providing power, depth, and ease of access to the most seasoned veteran? At Bungie, there is a long history of UI that questions established conventions in order to deliver the best user experience to the player.
In this session you will learn about the challenges faced, designs explored, and ultimately, what led the team to the decisions they made to create the game UI that the internet has been buzzing about. Specific topics include the free cursor, time gated interactions, localization valves in production, the visual direction, the icon creation pipeline, and designing the Director.
