UI INTEGRATION & ACCESSIBILITY
Our team worked specifically on UI Integration and Accessibility features for the game. The User Interface menus include items such as: main menus, loading screens, HUD, settings screens, tutorials windows, etc. On the accessibility front, we worked on the contrast mode, activation narration of UI accessibility for the blind, localization integration, adjustments on captions during narration, audio mechanism, etc.
