The Microsoft Casual Games team runs a suite of popular games but is best known for Microsoft Solitaire Collection. On average, 55 million Microsoft Solitaire Collection games are played each day! In December 2016, Microsoft Solitaire Collection introduced Events, a new game mode that lets players win awards alongside their friends and the community.
As a game designer with the Microsoft Casual Games team, I created wireframes, mockups and design specs for the various features of our soon-to-be-released Microsoft Solitaire Collection Events mode. I used a responsive design approach, with breakpoints detailing how content re-flows as the player’s app window scales anywhere from the size of a mobile phone display to a large-screen PC experience. I also worked on several other titles including Microsoft Mahjong, Microsoft Jigsaw, and the newly-announced Microsoft Ultimate Word Games.
