Downsideup Games is a small, independent games company, headquartered in Sunnyvale California that specializes in designing adventure, puzzle, and strategy games with rich, colorful graphics and high production values.
What's your vision?
Pocket Wars is a turn-based strategy multigame being developed by Downsideup Games for Apple iPad, iPhone and Mac/PC. Pocket Wars contains five strategy game scenarios, all in different time periods, some fantasy, some historical, some science fiction. We are looking for concept art for what will be one of the key graphics: The Time Map. This work is for our internal use to explore design ideas before the actual game art is created. Before a game can begin, the player has to select which scenario they would like to play. Possessing a unique and mysterious map of time, the player chooses the location where they will either protect and defend those who need it, or will wreak havoc and destroy the weak. Please read through the attached design brief for specific details on the contest and what we are looking for. (including what's expected at the first stage and if you are a finalist, and follow-on 1-1 projects, example graphics, etc.).
Please make sure you read the design brief before submitting any work :) Also, it doesn't have to be a parchment backing for the design (there is an example in the design brief that uses a parchment), it can be anything as long as the drawings for each scenario are linked together and the design looks "mystical" or somewhat "other worldly". Definitely doesn't have to be parchment :) Also, also, we offer 1-1 projects to the final stage designs at the end of the contest to buy your design. In other words, if your design is picked for the final round, but is not the final winning design, there’s still some money in it for your work. We felt it was a fair thing to do given the design. Read the design brief for details.
