Hi everyone at Epic,
I was browsing on the marketplace and sadly it has already started to feel cramped, to the point I was losing attention while staring at the thumbnails.
The design right now is not scalable, and the scariest part is that it’s starting to look like the apple app store.
Without proper search schemes and ranking (either epic driven and user generated) content is lost, and categories just help slightly.
Also would be good looking at curated content like steam is doing lately. The marketplace is a tool for people by people, feels natural to empower people.
If content discovery is not tackled now i think this will backfire to the marketplace as a whole, because losing trust from customers takes just one bad move but regaining it takes a hell lot more effort.
And this takes me to one of the main underlying problems: page size. Launcher’s fixed size is a very poor limit.
What are your plans for this? Is there an ongoing discussion on design and UX? Any place in which people can interact and suggest on the matter?
