Type: [.PSD] iPhone, with a faux CNN News Application
Compatibility: Photoshop 7.0 and up. Theoretically this should also work in Pixlr and GIMP, but I haven't tried. What is customizable? Slightly short of everything. Customizable text elements include: iPhone time (1:09 PM), News Navigation (Top Stories-Crime), Breaking News Headline, and the three related news stories.
Customizable images include: News logo (This is CNN's app, but it can be easily changed to a fictional news source, or another outlet), Breaking News photo (407 x 314), and three smaller related story images.
What the heck is this for?: An excellent question! I'm a nerd, and I love worldbuilding. Small touches from a moderator, or a player, can really help spark and energize the entire cast, and sometimes a small visual reference goes a long way. Social media applications suit a variety of different game-worlds. This particular 'Breaking News' sample was created with X-Men in mind, but it could suit nearly a dozen other games/fandoms. For example: A final news report about the zombie apocalypse before the media blackout, celeb headlines, Marvel/DC, or even Harry Potter (what's the Muggle interpretation of your in game magical events?).
This is provided in a .PSD format for simplicity's sake. Anyone can easily open this document, slide in a new photo, and change the text. The work is already done for you, and you can quickly change the information in under 15 minutes, and get back to your game.
credit, where it is due: Archangel manipulation is by the awesome marvel_icons. The iPhone PSD, which you will need, is from psdGraphics
