The Pixel Issue is part indie game studio, and part website for new and retro games, gadgets and geek culture. We are developing a videogame which aims to be the ultimate spy vs spy experience - thieves, spies and ninjas vs guards, mechanics and more! Target audience is kids, families, casual gamers, cartoon fans, adventure game fans, stylized art fans.
What's your vision?
We are looking for promotional 2D/3D art for our game, to convey the gameplay and characters within. Here's some more information on the game: http://www.pixel-issue.net/tag/hide-shriek/ Here's a video playlist: https://youtu.be/RC5pCIAsX04?list=PLFIxRx9JQDiKZkLnjJRpzrG94Nf17aKKY The artwork needs to be cartoony, fun, exciting, and showing the spies/thieves stealth perspective, and the guards/janitors weapons, tools and defense perspective. We have characters modeled for our game but they could be improved, if you have better ideas on how they should look like: - The thief should look serious, with a black mask over his eyes. sneaking, crouched, holding stolen items.. - the spy should be suave, with a suit on, possibly abseiling in, or hanging from a drainpipe. - the guard should have upper body muscles and tough guy look, walkie talkie, holding a gun. - the mechanic should be scruffy, but with a toolbelt around his waist, holding a wrench, possibly near an airvent. We also want to highlight the destructive nature of the game - perhaps books on fire being blown off a bookshelf, a safe with dynamite on it, smashed plates on the floor, furniture strewn around. The environment could either be inside the mansion, or in the garden - we are open to designers' input. Our game gives players the ability to climb drainpipes, ivy, ladders, walk along ledges, sneak into the mansion through windows, chimneys or trapdoors, and explore the environment to set traps, complete objectives such as steal jewels, paintings, statues and eliminate other players! There are some details, videos, gifs and screenshots over at: http://www.pixel-issue.net/tag/hide-shriek/ Hide & Shriek Mansion is a work in progress multiplayer game in Unity 3D, which will combine the classic point and click adventure game style with spy vs spy and hide n’ seek. Spies and thieves vs guards and mechanics, trap setting gameplay, fully navigable environments including climbing drainpipes, through windows, airvents and chimneys! We’re aiming for a low poly 2.5D style of graphics, 1 squirt invisible ink, a pinch of stealth gameplay and lots of cartoon violence! KEY FEATURES 2 teams of up to 8 players at a time, potentially more Level progression based single player campaign, with story Freedom to interact, collect and combine a wide variety of items hundreds of traps, explosives, recipes and schematics Hide and seek meets spy vs spy gameplay Elaborate traps and countertraps Fully navigable environments; climbing drainpipes, through windows, chimneys, tunnels, etc Customizable characters and wearable items play as a spy, thief, guard, mechanic, cat, mouse, dog and more! In game achievements, unlockables and rewards Additional maps planned; pirate ship, Santa’s grotto, museum, secret laboratory & more Here are some games that we are heavily inspired by: Guilty Party: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK5Jy4_mPPk&t=3m00s Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnSNQMPsn9A&t=2m40s Plants vs Zombies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv7t_zFUDBk Zack & Wiki: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOW4qhuJ790 Final Exam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDtHSeWsr70&t=3m56s Monkey Island in Cryengine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUE-aYJG_Js Day of the tentacle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz3Aw5qLcOs&t=8m36s Sam n Max 3D: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXSrxSRO0iI&t=1h12m00s Scooby Doo and the Spooky Swamp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSQXeQ816jA Scooby Doo First Fright: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-bA2Ey_w2A&t=2m54s Manufactura K4 Tower Defense assets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38L_wsNIBGA Spy vs Spy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP5G5CJn66M Further details: More info at http://www.pixel-issue.net http://www.facebook.com/pixelissue http://www.twitter.com/pixelissue http://www.youtube.com/pixelissue
We would like the cover art to feature the four main characters; the thief, the spy, the guard and the mechanic. The art should also show the mansion and garden - for which screenshots can be provided from the game. We want the cover art to be an artistic representation of the game. The in-game art is not final, so we are open to suggestion on the design of the cover art, the characters and the environment.
