HUD Activation Ideas

on: September 30, 2017, 12:33:39 pm
Hello,

This is a WIP screenshot of my game:


You see the eye and the hand? Whenever you are near an object in the environment, you press a key to activate the possible interactions with said outlined object (the fridge here).

Right now the possible interactions just suddenly appear and I don't like that. It looks rough and amateurish.

I'd like to know if you guys had creative ideas for the interaction hud to appear? I've been thinking a lot about this and watching videos on youtube to find ideas but I can't figure it out.

Thanks!

You could try to make them pop into existence with a little popping effect (like when something vanishes or suddenly pops into being in a cartoon). Or you could try starting very small and then making them to this size from a single pixel, you'd have to do it pretty quickly though.
