Fable Anniversary is a remastering of the Fable The Lost Chapters, which is now 10 years old! I was tasked with creating a remastered user interface which would honour the original game while still achieving a freshness which suits the current generation of consoles and PC systems.
The inventory screen was one of the biggest changes to the UI. The original game had many menu depths which you had to go back and forth through to find what you were after. I tried to simplify this by creating a new layout which allows for quicker navigation.
The trigger and bumper buttons of a gamepad control which menu and submenu you are viewing. The two thumb sticks and D-pad filter the content and aid in reading long item descriptions. Using this new layout players can quickly flick from choosing their equipment to reading about their current quest with minimal button presses.
