ZooKeeper: New Selection Menu
Hello again, ZooKeepers! 🐼
We may have been quiet for a while, but we’re as busy as ever! We’re now at a stage of constant testing, fixing and various improvements. Most of the tasks we’re handling lean on a technical side and so, they are difficult to show you in a graphical form.
The one thing we can show you, though, is the new zoo selection menu!
This is how the selection menu used to look like not long ago.
You could choose the area by pressing the arrows to the left or to the right and then, you would see an overview of the currently chosen zoo. An overview included a name, a short description and a rotating view of the area.
While it had its charm, there was room for improvement. Most notably, you may notice how you can only see the area you’ve chosen. There was no way to get a glimpse of the other zoo areas other than just aimlessly clicking through every other option. It wasn’t exactly practical for that reason.
Hopefully, the text in Polish won’t bother you too much – if you’re curious, though, “Dolina Kreatywności” stands for “Creativity Valley” and that’s the name of the area you see here. 🙂
Nowadays, zoo selection menu looks like this:
As you can see, it’s much more intuitive and easier to navigate than it was before! While browsing through various locations, you’ll be able to see a glimpse of three options at once – the one that’s currently chosen, the previous one according to selection’s order, as well as the one that comes right after the chosen one. If you see an interesting location among three options visible, you can pick an area by clicking on its thumbnail, which is definitely more intuitive than having to stick to arrows all the time. 😄
How do you like it?
We are also preparing a Star awarding system, but we can’t show you it just yet, as the work is still in progress – we’ll leave details for the next devlog instead. 🙂
That’s it from us! We’ll keep working on the game to make it as relaxing and fun as possible! 💪 If ZooKeeper caught your attention, consider adding the game to your Wishlist and stay up to date with development progress! You can also join our Discord channel and talk to us about this or any other game we’re working on!
