While the rest of the team is busy finalizing the user interface, cleaning up the story, designing collectibles and fine-tuning the soundtrack, I’m not slacking off either. Admittedly I’m not doing any work on the game, which is obviously the actual achievement.
But there is more to a product than the product itself. I’m referring to the product’s presentation – the Schein website. It has been long neglected and is far from what we want it to be. Now, I’m definitely not an expert in this area, but since there are no other resources we can resort to, the task has fallen to me to create a new website.
A while ago our former artist, Philipp, began designing a new website for Schein, and this design is now being completed by Flip. I am especially happy about the new graphics, which I think go so much better with the game.
To achieve a nicely responsive layout I have started rebuilding the site from scratch using Twitter Bootstrap. For those interested, I will be giving some details on the actual code setup in my next blog.
A major aspect we are going to change is, that we are turning it into a product website, instead of the homepage it has been until now. For instance we will be featuring our blog on the Zeppelin Studio page instead of on the Schein page.
In fact, I have been publishing all blog entries on both sites for a while now, but as of today the distributed link will be that of the Zeppelin Studio homepage. In the next couple of days, you will be seeing more of the content being shifted to that site and the old Schein page transforming. We will strip away all the superfluous pages and reduce the content to a minimum, which shall capture a players’ interest and arouse their curiosity.
I’m really excited for the new site to go live, and I’ll be keeping you up to date on the development. Keep in touch!
