Catchin' Cats Chapter 2: User Interface 1.0



My eyes!!! What have you done to my eyes!!!




Oh I'm so sorry Pingouin, I should have warned you. But you're here early!
Well today we will talk about... our first GUI!





That's what you call GUI? Seriously?



As you could guess, it's all placeholder! Let me explain: after we made our first prototype, my friend needed a lot of assets to start working. It didn't have to be pretty or anything, juste to be there, and close enough to the final version in functionality.
So I made a quick flowchart (I already had drafts of what I wanted) and UI assets. I used round shapes and purple colors.





 About that flowchart... Excuse-me but navigation seems a bit complicated to me!




Well that's true... when browsing menus, the player moves to different parts of a same background, and that's not really... ergonomic.
But all the important informations are on the main page and you don't need to browse those menus often.
So I decided to make a funny navigation, with a nice atmosphere and cute kittens to discover!




Okay then, but do something for that background!




Oh Pingouin...
Here are the first rough, line art, and final result! You're feeling better?







Yes! That's much better, I know exactly where I will take my first nap!




I'm glad you like it! Pingouin?

Well... see you soon for a new chapter!

Catchin' Cats Chapter 1


 We're back to tell our little Catchin' Cats story!



Yes Pingouin. Now we go back in December 2014!

After spending the year working on Tuesday Quest little games, I was in no way ready to work in a bigger team. I wished to spend a few more months on indie games and develop one of my own.
And I got pretty lucky! A friend of mine was in the same spirit, and she was a programmer so we completed each other skills! Plus we both wanted to make something really cute!

We started to work on the game prototype!


What did we need to start?



Well first, as we wanted kittens to fall from the sky, we needed kittens...


Oh yes, I see kittens! Damned I've seen kittens everywhere since you started to work on this game...



And we wished them to be funny and dynamic, so I prepared them for animation...



 This is terrible! I hope you you're not planning to do that evil thing to me!




Well Pingouin, if you ever wish to be part of a game, I'm afraid you will have to pass through this process...


Try on the Raptor first!
What happened next?


We worked within Unity for a few days (that's the coding part, not mine ^^), and... voilĂ !



That's a tower of cats falling from the sky!



Yeah! We got our prototype ready pretty quickly, but that was just the very first step!
You're ready to comment the next part?






Oh, he's asleep already...
Stay tuned! ;)

What's up Pingouin?!

Wow it's been a while!


Yeah you've be ignoring me for too long... Drawing kittens and more kittens...



I'm so sorry Pingouin, working on our first indie game just took all my time and energy...
Will you help me present our little game and its production process?



Only if your next game involve my cute and inestimable character!


Deal! I'll start working on a "Pingouin & Raptor... something" shortly ;)






So, let's introduce our 2nd Team's first production: Catchin' Cats!




That's the banner picture we've been using and posting everywhere, I'm kinda sick of it, even if I understand you're trying to establish a visual brand!


That's it Pingouin, we need it to be recognizable!
But that's the communication part, and we ought to tell the story from the start!


Well it all started 3 years ago in Tokyo when we were winning all those cute kitten plushies from the MewMew Tower in UFO catchers!



Wait, A TOWER OF KITTIES?! That's AWESOME! I liked that game concept and yet I thought that it could well be mixed with a more dynamic gameplay like Tetris.

A few months later, I worked on some mock-ups to materialize my idea:


Cats would fall from the sky and you would have to catch them on a moving tower.

I believed then (and I still do) that making a cute game with kitties could work well on mobile platforms... But it would take a long time before I planned anything more for this concept!



So that's it?! We will continue the story later? I can take an afternoon nap?



That's it Pingouin! Sleep tight and stay tuned for the next chapter to come!
