BattleJuice Alchemist – RPG with deck-building & bullet time


UI Accessibility & Merchandise Adjustments

Hey everybody,

within the final patch I launched some options that may assist taking part in BattleJuice Alchemist regardless of difficulties with handbook dexterity. At this time I pushed patch 0.20401 to the general public department of the Steam playtest and I wish to speak a bit in regards to the options serving to out with visible accessibility.

I didn’t notice it at first and thought all the things was high-quality with my flask UI, one of the crtitcal UIs within the recreation.

That was till I checked screenshots with the assistance of Coblis, a web based coloration blindness simulator. It’s a useful gizmo to get an impression of how folks with completely different coloration imaginative and prescient handicaps understand pictures. Probably the most extreme deficiency is monochromacy/achromatopsia, which implies whole coloration blindness. So let’s check out that UI once more:

Monochromacy and achromatopsia mainly make the sport unplayable. This additionally impacts objects throughout the stock, wich you may see by 9 completely different flasks:

To repair this downside I added icons to all flasks and the UI. I categorized flasks into three teams by including completely different fundamental outer icon shapes for useful resource flasks (drop), defensive flasks (defend) and offensive flasks (spiky circle/explosion) and a novel icon for every flask to unmistakably determine it. Right here is the end result:

Beside that, I made modifications to UI components somewhere else and hope the sport is extra accessible to fairly a couple of folks now.

In different information, I mounted bugs, overhauled merchandise’s affixes and labored on different mechanics. And to finish with an thrilling transferring picture, I overhauled the teleportation affix. I like not having to seek for a city’s entrance.

Thanks for studying and have an excellent weekend!
