Hi. Still here? Steal2 right? So we began work on that game a while ago didn’t we? I’ll admit it’s been a slow one this. Indie development is tough, there’s very few of us here at NMP, yadda yadda and all the other excuses. Thought I’d show you something today though. Something from the original art style concept work… my mood boards essentially. I like mood boards, they serve as a nice reminder during development. A hook to hang the art from. The most important thing about a mood board is what is not on it. If it’s not on the mood board, it’s not going in the game! So Steal2 is not a sci-fi game, and it’s not completely realistic either. It’s not set in the 21st Century, it’s ambiguously somewhere kinda ’80s feeling, but with many relics of technology from longer ago (bankers are dinosaurs after all). Development continues… as you can imagine!
Meanwhile I’ll be sharing a few snippets from our process, going way back into the history.

Enter China! Thanks to some amazingly helpful students from Shanghai our company name is translated (phonetically) into a cool Chinese symbol. The talented graphic designer Li Huiying worked with me, creating many ideas for t-shirt graphics. One of her designs was so simple, I incorporated it into our existing logo style and the result are these awesome new products!
