Matters of Sketch

I've been tempted to try out a new software for UI design. After reading a few articles, Sketch 3 seemed like a good choice so I installed the free trial. I must say, it's an incredible tool. It's made for pixel work. We saw the recent updates to photoshop to try to make it work better with pixels but it's not there yet. There's a lot missing. I won't go in a long critique of photoshop, but you should definitely try Sketch 3. I took a small 30 minutes of my sunday to make this small icon and I can say that it was not a frustrating experience with the software.

However, I'm going to challenge myself a bit more and I'm going to say, this mobile game is a multiplayer game. So here we go for the design document.
