Feedback on Soft Shutdown Image (My 10th photoshop project)

Hi, so I am working on a game called Dayron Grill and decided to make my own soft shutdown. I needed some ui so I made this image:


Please tell me what you think!

It looks cool but I don’t understand why they wouldn’t leave the game

Soft shutdown makes it when you need to update but dont want to make everyone leave you can just click migrate or shutdown servers and this custom gui will appear and players will go to updated server automatically.

It is really bland and unattractive. It doesn’t have the game name in it and the text saying “don’t leave the game” and “give us a moment while we get new servers up!” makes me not want to play it. Maybe have a picture of what the update is about or what the concept of the game is.

Well the game is a hangout so i don’t want to make it super advanced. What can i do without changing the whole logo. Maybe change “Dont Leave The Game!” to “Dayron Grill”

Yeah, that would be good. Maybe a picture of the map in the background.

Theres a lot of problems going on with this lol

  1. The cute hotdog is not neatly cropped out… Its outline is really jagged.
  2. Text is in really simple and common font. Try some unique and catchy font styles.
  3. Theres a lot of text: You are technically “describing” a situation in the picture which is almost never a good idea for a thumbnail/ icon.
    — Removing the text “DON’T LEAVE THE GAME” and the bottom blue text will look much better.
  4. Since you told in the replies, its a hangout game and you dont need a high quality thumbnail, ur wrong. Infact, hangouts already dont get much attraction and if you put such thumbnail/ Icon, Im sure it wont grab much attention at all…
  5. And damn I just saw your game map and edited my reply: The map is actually really clean and good. Now you really need to put more effort in this GFX to attract people in seeing your actual creation…
    Sorry if this sounded a bit harsh but u know… Criticism makes improvement and who doesnt want to improve?

yeah, I will work on that. I want to stick to the game’s cartoony font style for the softshutdown, i’ll find other cartoon fonts.

exactly, the map looks really good and if your GFX for thumbnail isnt interesting enough, you wont be able to show what you have created. So try to put a really catchy GFX as I suggested some tips earlier :smiley:
