Ship of Theseus by Alcopopstar. This dollmaker game invites you to choose from a list of possible parts in each slot. For this exercise, the design language of the dolls and the framing of the scene are the most important aspects.

Warframe character customisation screen. The pose of the character Titania shown here is close to what I’d want to do with the dolls. Also, the layout with the character slightly off-centre and an information menu on the left.
