We're redesigning Minecraft's Menus
Give us your input on our Discord channel!
Menus! They're essential for helping you navigate Minecraft and get to what you want with ease. That's why we've started working on a major redesign of the Minecraft menu - also known as the UI (User Interface) - for all Bedrock Engine-based platforms (so that's Minecraft on Xbox One, Windows 10, VR, mobile devices and Nintendo Switch).
What would you like to see from an updated Minecraft menu? There may be things you want to make easier? Or maybe there’s a way the menus could be better for your device? Or maybe you want to add something entirely new to the main menu or create world screen? Or maybe just a button that makes a pig squealing noise when you press it? (all games should have that, really).
Whatever your ideas are, we'd love to see them!
To help you get started, we've made four Paper Prototyping Kits that can help you come up with a menu design for Minecraft on console, desktop, mobile and phone! You can download these by using the links below and they've got loads of great tips and advice to help you design your perfect Minecraft interface:
Here's some of the stuff you'll find in your kit!
That's just a few pages of the kit. Also included is extra space to make your own buttons, add new buttons, or even create new things that have never been seen before in Minecraft. We want to see everything!
These kits are a great way to get started. But if you don’t have a printer at home, or want to make something entirely new, feel free to draw it out on paper or use a fancy app of your liking.
Then if you want to share your designs with us (yes please!) you can do that on our our Minecraft Discord channel.
Minecraft players aged 13+ or parents of younger players can join the official Minecraft Discord server. Just click this lovely line of green text to be taken straight to it and then add your ideas in the #UI-feedback channel.
Share photos of your work or share a YouTube video in the channel! Here's a few ideas our team came up with to get you started:
We can't wait to see what you come up with!
