About the Project

Astroneer is an Indie Space Themed Exploration, Survival and Crafting Game developed by System Era that has been released on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.  

Project Duration:
MAY - JUNE 2021
My Role:
UX Research, UX/UI Design, User Testing

The Problem

Players are tasked with exploring alien worlds during the 25th century's Intergalactic Age of Discovery, colonizing 7 unique planets/moons and unearthing rare treasures and discoveries.

The game has been around since 2016, and with years of game play the developers need to continuously update and add new features in order to keep the game exciting and relevant.

The Solution

Research the wants and needs of the Astroneer community, and design the user experience of a new feature that best fits the gameplay. The goal is to increase the retention rate and encourage previous users to play the game again.
