What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The main character in the game is a bouncing ball (called Bot), that show the rhythm in the game. Different Bots are planned that have different characteristics. Please check out one of the videos Youtube.com/ovelinbird or play the game yourself (its free) at guitarbots.com, to see what the function of the ball is.
We have updated our game visuals from a slightly gloomy to a rather happy mood. Thus, we would like to have characters that fit the game. They should be mostly round, but can have some limbs etc too, or do something while flying between the bounces. Basic other shapes may be used too if they make sense Ice-cube-Bot would obviously be a cube.
Eventually we want several characters, but 1-2 of them would already be enough for us to get the picture /idea. They should be recognisable (have character and be recognised to be from the same game) and as said, fit the mood.
Please note: the character above is the OLD example, and not a guideline. Please feel free to come up with something dramatically different. Also, we will award the winner with the best ideas, and probably re-do some of the work. So please concentrate on the idea, not the polishing. Good ideas are more important than a perfect finish. Ask questions, we are happy to answer.
