A User Interface Project
NY Noire is a polished Main Menu System that depicts a 1940's era Private Investigator's office, and was my first project for a User Interface Design & Implementation module at Undergraduate level.
The menu was entirely developed via visual scripting in Unreal Engine 4, with an emphasis on using the UMG system to setup a precise and streamlined experience.
I drew inspiration from existing Main Menu systems of the same genre, as well as some with dynamic camera movement, such as: LA Noire, Grim Fandango, and Sniper Elite.
I was also inspired by the opening sequence in Jessica Jones to give a more modernised style to the scene. It interested me how warm and cold colours portrayed mood on a dark backdrop, leading me to light my environment with the support of this style.
