#QuickTips for this week are from our ✨game designers✨ **REWARDS – Known and unknown rewards**1. Based on the game mechanics and the tasks you are giving to the player, there are many types of systems you can use for setting up the rewards, bonuses, and penalties. Besides the balancing, make sure that they have logical relation to those tasks, serving a player as motivation or anticipation depending on is it a known or unknown reward. 2. Known rewards are the ones that are given information of beforehand what would be acquired once the task is completed (e.g. once a boss fight is completed, player will gain special item that has belonged to that boss) or unknown, which can be a treasure chest or entrance to the vault that may hold items or power ups, but not revealed beforehand. Make sure that you make a right choice for the task to have known or unknown reward based on the genre, narrative progression or other aspects of your game design as it may not be fulfilling the players’ expectations of the gaming experience.3. While known rewards are usually “significant rewards” and part of the major events/quests, for the unknown rewards many designers may pick randomization of the several significant items to solve some of the design challenges – be aware that randomization has own upsides and downsides. For example, in the games that have save and load option, player can return to the saved slot as many times as pleased until acquires the reward that was desired by a player, which may cause issues unless that is carefully planned design decision that serves desired gaming experience.

#QuickTips for this week are from our ✨game artists✨ **SCALING**1. Relative size of the characters in relation to the environment: we spoke about frame before and the camera use in setting the composition – this is where it is important to set the horizon line to set the relative scale! The horizon line determines the perspective and enables to set the size of the characters and other objects in comparison to the environment creating the “gameplay feel”.2. The horizon line has many purposes, some are atmospheric, some are set for the storytelling purposes, while most are used for keeping the focus on the gameplay goal(s) at a given moment. No matter of the use, horizon line divides the frame and sets the perspective of the environment the player acts within - make sure to follow the dynamic of the spaces set with the horizon line with the dynamics of the game mechanics set for desired gameplay experience. 3. The relative scale serves as a base, a pillar of your visual design, as well as a tool for visual and interactive storytelling. By making more/less dominant relations of the characters and objects you are directly effecting the players’ experiences of being either vulnerable or empowered!Have a creative week everyone! #mondaymotivation ...

Viking Glory

Visualization &
VR Experience

Viking Line is a pioneer in the development of sustainable passenger ships of the future. Their mission is to offer the most memorable cruising experiences on the most sustainable, energy-efficient, and climate-smart vessels in the Baltic sea.

While the physical ship was being constructed on the other side of the globe, in Finland and Sweden Viking Line commissioned the creation of a virtual version of the ship together with MiTale, as our team of experts in architectural visualization and immersive VR experiences matched the needs of the project.

In addition to being used to create 2D visualizations of the ship to be used in marketing, the creation of a virtual version of Viking Glory and the use of virtual reality and gamification enabled the management and staff of Viking Line to explore the ship freely, interact with the environment and watch the magnificent, simulated archipelago glide by outside the ship on its route between Turku and Stockholm.
