First Character Design Sketches for Mobile Game

After many, many, tutorials and practice game applications I felt ready to start working on my own game. Unfortunately, one doesn’t really realize all the aspects of what goes in to making an indie game from sitting on the side lines. As I considered the scope of my personal game I needed to focus on one of my favorite parts of game design is developing an idea. The root, the source, the foundation, the canonized story from which all other ideas spring.

To help eliminate some aspects of over scoping I wanted to make the character and setting relativly simple yet tapping into what I enjoy, Halloween.

Everyone loves Christmas and I do as well but Halloween is probably one of my favorite times of year. Though I may enjoy the some of the aspects of horror the real joy derives from all them magical and fantastical creatures, monsters, and stories which surround this holiday.

Reviewing what resources I already had at my disposal along with a possible story and scope Candy Corn Sticker and had success getting them into the App Store.

As I consider the possibilities for my game which now included Candy Corns, I finally arrived at the idea all humans are all to familiar with fear. And, uniquely some of the strangest fears derive from simple harmless bugs. So using the already used Candy Corn assets, which you really should go purchase now, here, I jumped into doing some character design sketches of creatures or bugs for this newly developed world.

My first course of action as it always is, is to develop something completely new but something you feel like you have always seen.

Candy Corn Critter Icon Development

I hope everyone enjoys this TikTok video. The purpose of this TikTok is to ask the public which icon they like the best for the Candy Corn Critters mobile game.

For the development of Candy Corn Critters I needed a variety of several new characters designed as opponents for my game. In the development of Candy Corn Critters I was needing some fun looking little bad guys. As I designed these characters I did not want to make these little Critters look mean, bad, evil, or nasty. These little critters are just as guilty as anyone, we like them love Candy Corn and will stop at nothing to get our hands on some.

When designing the Critters I wanted to use very vibrant colors with diverse amounts of colors coming together in harmony in one character. Also the values and colors must pop of the screen and not blend into an already busy background.

With so much concern in to these characters I began liking all of them the same. As the icon was being developed I used the spider as a place holder for game development however with each critter character I found something else that could contribute to a nice icon.

So I am now calling on the game loving public to help me decide which icon is the strongest. Remember this little icon with have to compete for your attention amongst all the other icons on your iPhone or Android phone.
