The Arting as begun!
I got over-excited. At this stage in development there really shouldn’t be anything resembling polished artwork…
There shouldn’t be any art yet as I’m focusing on my prototype BUT I had an evening off the other day and couldn’t help myself so, now, we have a mockup for the card design for Beards and Booty.
The card info is broken down into three main parts:
- The icon at the top – denotes what Type the card is. This has an impact on what skills certain players can make on the card.
- The Dice Faces that you need to match in order to defeat the card and move on to the next
- The Background, with its name and illustration.
Thematically this is working for me right now. It looks bright, fun, and is characterful. The icons are big and bold and, while they don’t clash, they do stand above the background enough that they should be a quick read.
Playtesting will see if these assumptions are correct. This is why it’s time to get back to the prototype!
