In this part of our GUI tutorial, we will be turning our lo-fi mock-ups into wire-frames and eventually a beautiful GUI map using Balsamiq. Balsamiq is a freely available (paid-upgrade) mock-up tool, which is used frequently in UX design and web design. Fortunately for us, it happens to feature all the shapes and sizes we need to generate a mock-up which looks very similar to that of a Java Swing graphic user interface. We will be using the Balsamiq mock up to build our Java Swing GUI for our game in the next few tutorials, so make sure to follow along and try your best to make it pretty!
We highly suggest you leave us any comments or feedback that would aid in bettering the production of these tutorials. Additionally, subscribing to us will help us to better engage you (the audience) such that we can improve our tutorials even further!
