As I'd already created the brand, character, environments, maps and animation concepts I was super excited to start work on the UI. The brief was to simply continue where I'd left off with the in game elements and expand upon that world to create the menu look and feel.
As the game is set in times past and is all about cartoony dragons, it seemed only fitting to use an old chunky stone effect for the overall look of the UI components. My work here, as with the in game art, was more conceptual, so the guys at Haypi took my work and expanded upon it to create the remaining UI elements...of which there were looooooooooooooooots!
This was a cool one to work with as the brand is soooo funky. All that old school USA flare, pin striping, motorcycles and amazing insignia.
Slick Entertainment, the guys behind the Xbox 360 version of the classic N+ and the new, and rather awesome looking Scrap Metal, knocked on my virtual door and asked if I’d be interested in working with them on their new site...silly question really.
