It’s cute and pretty good, considering I did it on the same day I wrote the game for the 1KM1KT contest. But I wanted and needed a better logo for the Beta, which resulted in this:
Now that’s more like it; weighty words to crush a little garden gnome. This was perfect for the Beta, but I don’t want to stay in Beta forever, and so it’s time to move on to something way cooler. Perhaps even darker and more emotive, something that really grabs the imagination! And so I went to my brother, who works as a graphic designer and illustrator, and he came up with this sexy little number:
I think you’ll agree, this is epic! With Don’s art and the fiction I’m writing for the book, this looks set to be a proper role-playing game that we can all be proud of. And that means you too, I’d love you to join the effort; download the game, play it and give me feedback (details in the book), or buy a print from Redbubble and show us your support. All play testers will be credited in the book, which is a great opportunity for you to build some rep in the RPG industry. Also, any money we make now gets pumped right back into the game, so when you buy something you really are helping us make the game more awesome!
I posted an update to the rules for Claustrophobia! yesterday which includes the following updates:
Clarifications of many of the rules and standardization of terms throughout the book.
Improved layout of the monster entries to improve readability.
Added details about the Claustrophobia! Art Project.
Inclusion of a basic Glossary of Terms.
Many formatting tweaks.
Be sure to download the latest version of the rules now.
The Art Project
The Art Project on RedBubble is a showcase of the final book art for the game. Here I’ll be posting works from time to time, giving you the chance to wet your appetite and tell us what you think about the art. By buying stickers and t-shirts you help us fund more artworks and improve the final edition of the game.
Later this month and in early August I’m off on holiday, so I’m not planning any updates until late August. This time will be a chance for me to unwind, regroup and come back stronger than before. If you’re off on holiday I hope you have a great time and safe travels too.
Today I thought I’d share some of the concept art I’ve done for Claustrophobia! so far. Its been loads of fun getting out the pencils and brushes for this project, mucking about with watercolours and ink again. When I wrote Claustrophobia! I only had 24 hours for the creation process, so the concept art lets me explore the world in more detail. I’m excited to see where it will lead. Continue reading Concept Art – Claustrophobia!→
