THE GAME


Published in 2015 to coincide with the 30 year anniversary of legendary British developer Rare, comes Rare Replay. An iconic collection of 30 games, Rare Replay presents many classics from its impressive back catalogue. Nostalgic players can remember long days with their favourite Rare titles while newer gamers can experience for the first time titles that inspired subsequent generations of games designers.

FLOWS


To begin with, we mapped out the decision tree for the game, taking into account all the choices the player is given as they work their way through the menu system.

The flow diagrams represent a ‘bird’s eye’ view of the whole interface, which enabled us to get a better understanding of the scope of the game.

WIREFRAMES


We created a menu system that would support the ‘theatre’ narrative and provide the player with easy access to their favourite titles.

We explored a number of different ways in which the catalogue could be accessed and various ways in which extra game challenges could be revealed during play.

ANIMATION


Animation was a key aspect of the package as each game was represented by an animated picture frame and a ‘stage’ specific to each title.

We had great fun creating mini stories within these stages that alluded to these classic games.
