Haypi Pirates (Kingdom of Pirates)

The brief:

This is the 4th game I've worked on with Haypi and yet again it was damn good fun, this time it was on Haypi Pirates! As I already had a good working relationship with the team I was ready for what was to come. They wanted something that gave off the Pirate vibe and really set the games lovely visuals off.

The solution:

As the game was about pirates it was key to give this a good nautical feel, using old woods and metals throughout. I initially started work on the brand, as I always believe that the brand must be the anchor (sorry, bad pun) to all things that surround it, so with the brand set in place I moved onto the UI. It took a couple of iterations before we landed on the exact style that felt right, but once we had, the following user interfaces just rolled out very smoothly. Great fun.

Silly Little Undead Warrior

Don’t ask, I have no idea. He hee, well, I just got a little caught up in some good issues of ImagineFX, one too many fantasy movies and a couple of great new books, needless to say I thought I’d throw a mix of traditional painting with my usual cartoony style...and got this.

Eyeball Invaders

Eyeball Invaders was a fun little side project that I worked on back in 2008 for Fishing Cactus which is now on Steam Greenlight!
