Buffet Blast is a game about eating until you explode to rack up the most points. The game is set in space and the menus are seen on a ship console.
Conveyance was a constant challenge when designing the UI for this game because a lot of the action was happening in the middle of the screen, which did not make players want to look at the outer edges of the screen to see their progress. After playtesting, all player stats were moved to the top of the screen near the timer. Other forms of conveyance through models, flat color coded graphics under the player, outlines around the characters to know who is who, and particle systems were put in the gameplay space.
