Expanding a game’s icon
As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to tell your players what the game is about just from a little icon and name on the games page, for example Booga Booga, no one knew what this game was and lost a lot of attention because of the game’s icon at first until people saw it grow and read what the game was about, and it turned out the game was amazing. And this would show the users the little more information they need to see if the game is worth it and see what it is about.
Currently when you hover over a game’s icon you don’t really see a lot of information as shown in the image below
My idea is having a “Expand” Button, which would make it easier for the user to look more about the game at a faster rate and improve the user experience. This could include having;
- A scrolling screen of the description
- The last time the game was updated
The current issue for the game page, it doesn’t show much information and people often can get confused what the game is really about from the thumbnail, this will make users dislike the users game because they didn’t read the description and just show the thumbnail, which means the game will be put down more (If the user expected different) This will save the users much time to go back and from the game to see the description and seeing what the game is really about.
All of these features would improve the experience showing the user more information on a smaller screen which will save the user time, for example they might have bad internet and the other page might take a while to load, they can just use the Quick play access!
This feature could work by having a expand button / icon on the games icon / Underneath and the icon would expand within a animated style on the x axis or it could work by hovering over the icon, but I feel this would annoy the users when they put their mouse over a game to go to the next game, so this isn’t really the best way of doing this.
