I had this problem for about 30min. URL query parameter was updating but it wasn't enlarging the photo. I guess they pushed some bad code.
Interesting to see more people using that setup. I have signed up for email updates. Good luck with the development!
Awesome idea. I looked at Prismic, Contentful and some other smaller offerings for third parties but didn't like the external cloud hosting they offered for my small portfolio site. In the end, I begrudgingly used a combination of Wordpress for my CMS, and using the JSON API plugin. I then created a script for my server to call and cache common endpoints every few minutes, which created a local "live" JSON file for my frontend to load.
This made performance a breeze, without worrying about the bloat of Wordpress plugins to improve the admin experience.
One day though I dreamed that someone would create a locally-stored headless CMS! Please keep me up to date with this, it sounds very promising!
Thanks for the update. Fingers crossed it's soon! Got some serious prototyping coming up on my project in the next few weeks and excited to test it in my workflow!
I've been on the waiting list since October 2017! I'm not sure how much longer I can wait... Anyone from InVision a member here that can scratch my itch? :(
Beautifully designed, well done!
Thanks for the detailed reply, this is pretty much exactly what I was hoping to find - is the product cloud-only? Due to some client contractual things using cloud services generally are difficult to get approved.
The Last of Us has a fantastic UI, I'll have to listen to that interview! Thanks for the tip.
Thanks a lot for your kind words; that's super nice of you. I hope I have the opportunity to discuss what succeeds and what fails on my projects in the future; there's just not enough critical discussion about game UI (which leads us full circle to this article!)
I'm fortunate that I was moving from a Junior/Associate position working on iOS / Android design, to a mid-level position here. This meant I actually managed to increase my salary quite significantly compared to before, though I was offered slightly more by a London-based tech startup to join as mid-level UI designer.
I would imagine for most people "sidegrading" in the industry, it could potentially mean a pay cut, but from what I've heard the industry as a whole is more competitive on salary now than years before.
Our studio works on it's own IP (Anywhere between 10-20% of staff) as well as acting as an agency for AAA work. No active projects are currently for indie games, and we work on titles spanning PC, Xbox 1 and PS4.
Interestingly, we are recruiting for various UI design jobs right now (London, UK - no remote) so if you're interested DM me on Twitter and I will happily send you some info :)
I've recently made the opposite switch (Web/App UI to Video Game UI) as it's a lifelong passion of mine, and I've been desperate to work on more interactive design. It's early days at the moment, but I'm so much happier right now and don't regret a thing.
