Gratuitous Tank Battles
I was tasked with quite a few elements for this game, which initially started out with the branding. The game is set in the future, but in a world where WW1 is still raging. As the name suggests, tanks play a major role in this game, so the branding had to incorporate elements to reflect all of the above. Adding to this I was also tasked with creating a kick ass matte painting for the title screen using a collection of tank and mech renders, followed by some UI concept work and the website homepage...ooooh yes!
It was actually quite tough to begin with as I was challenged with creating a look that felt both futuristic and also anchored in WW1...tough, but damn fun! We didn't want the game to feel steam punk themed as this is was obvious visual solution, so a war-torn, bulky and very mechanical feel was settled on. Too much fun. Following this I had to create a mammoth title screen image using a collection of mech and tank renders. I do a lot of this kind of work for websites (the big backgrounds you see in most of my games sites) so it was a nice change to create this for a game's title screen. It was a huge undertaking but the final result came out really well. Finally the main game UI and website design were the last parts of the project and equally as enjoyable too. As I'd already created a stylistically strong identity/atmosphere, the site came together naturally. How I loved this project!!!!!
As Microsoft Games Studios were renaming and re-branding their Vancouver based development studio to Black Tusk Studios (to coincide with the development of a brand new Xbox exclusive IP), I was tasked with creating their all new online presence to join the action. Rather exciting!
This was an epic project to work on! It was one of many Arabic comic related projects that I’ve been working on with the guys over at Aranim in Jordan.
