FAQ

The best way to test a game UX prototype is to design the prototype in a tool with built-in sharing capabilities – like Adobe XD – and share the prototype with users in your target audience. You can conduct tests with a panel you assemble yourself or use a user and usability testing service like UserTesting.com that will assemble a panel for you.

Adobe XD is a tool of choice for many game designers because of its intuitive yet powerful features and integration with Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe XD integrates with Adobe Photoshop and After Effects and offers features like Auto-Animate, Component States, and supports prototyping with Xbox, Playstation, and other game controllers to help speed up workflows and create incredible game UX prototypes.

The two most important components to include in a game UX design are visual signs to inform a player that something is about to happen or that they must make a decision and feedback – either visual or physical – to inform a player that an action has been taken.

Adobe XD makes it easy to quickly mockup game designs with intuitive yet powerful features and integration with Adobe Creative Cloud. You can easily design game UI with Components, Content-Aware Layout, and Libraries, or import visuals from Photoshop and Illustrator for prototyping. Plus, once you’ve designed a mockup, you can quickly switch to Prototype mode to start bringing your designs to life.

Creative Cloud

Photography, video, graphic design, illustration, and so much more. Everything you need, wherever your imagination takes you.
