Downsideup Games is a small, independent company located in California that designs innovative adventure, puzzle and strategy games for the tablet and Mac/PC games market.
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. This contest is to draw concept art for two game piece characters for our third game: The Exclusion Zone. The two characters to be created are scientists helping the military! The concept art requirement is to outline your vision for the characters based on their bios in the design brief :) 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.).
**Designers: feel free to sketch only one character (your choice..) for qualifying round if you would prefer vs both. You will be asked to create both characters in the final round but we will buy the designs if you do not win. ** **IMPORTANT** Please make sure you read the design brief and particularly the character bios before submitting any work :) Also, please do feel free to create a character concept design based on your vision that comes to you when you read the character bios, but do pay attention to key features that are called out in the bios (such as appearance traits, etc). 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.
