Hey everyone! This will be my first official post on here! Over the past month me and my team have been finalizing a big update to our game. Surprisingly one of the things that has left us most confused is what makes a good loading screen? We’ve scanned through many front page games and tried stuff ourselves. Yes, this may seem like a simple or even meaningless thing, but studies do show the first several seconds of something whether it be loading up a game or video, determine how engaged the audience will be for what follows, including their playtime and enjoyment.
Now, our issue is determining what a good loading screen is, we tried a logo popping up and slowly filling up with color, but it just was not satisfying. We tried an asset loading bar, that was not pretty either. Now we are wondering what you guys think a good loading screen would look like?
So far we think adding more poppy tweening effects will help, but ultimately it will come down to the layout of the screen.
So… we would love to hear what you all think a good loading screen would look like! (For context our game is about food, but you can be as general as you want with this.)
