Midnight Sherpa worked with Riot Games and Goldtooth Creative to create two pieces showcasing two Summoners and their abilities to make quick assessments that facilitate a victory for their teams. The game’s visual design provided a jumping off point for us to create the holographic interpretations which tie the game world and real world together. The surgical precision of the hundreds of calculations the players make are shown through a series of integrated graphical animations.
Recreating Summoner's Rift
Working with our partners, we created in-depth holographic maps, characters avatars, re-interpretations of abilities and spells, scoreboards, banners, and strategic markers to convey the player’s thoughts. Our team installed and learned the game to better familiarize ourselves with the countless facets of gameplay. We then developed a visual systems to track relevant player calculations based on our understanding of the game.
