germinationx_visual_design

Part of the germinationx game design

Current sprites

Ideas Reference

General look

  1. Has to be simple, hundreds of frames of different plants in stages of growth/decay needed.
  2. Has to work with an isometric view (but it's all flat planes overlayed with transparency)
  3. Not too hippy, need to move away from games like http://apps.facebook.com/treetopia
  4. Perhaps more monochromatic/schematic is a good approach

  1. Some nice colour combination and general feel from “Noiseman Sound Insect”

Player character

Thinking of a mandrake, but is the first thought.

Perhaps all characters should be plants?

Companion character

Quite taken with the worms idea - who would know more about permaculture than worms? It's possible a “wise old” character or hive mind would work well too.

I really like the style of this:
