  1. Whoa. Brings to mind the cover artwork for one of those early Metallica albums.

    So metal one.

  2. Am definitely having 2nd thoughts over using diff themed artworks for the game.

    One of the defining factors for a successful CCG (the original paper ones at least) is making a believable world in which the player will be playing in. There’s a reason why the major franchises are being used for a CCG (LOTR, Star Wars, Initial D, WoW) because they already have a fan base for those worlds. There are other factors to why they have failed as well.

    Hopefully you guys have made case studies and not create this game simply because the concept is new and untried. There’s a difference between being a pioneer and a guy who brings in new junk into the market. (Not to throw ice on you guys but…)

    Some comment on the card bg/frames:
    – Need a more solid/distinguished colouring so that people can identify it easier.
    – Card back needs a bit more work IMHO

    On the poster(if it IS a poster):
    – You’re not serious of putting this up on the web (much less on the street) as a promo poster are you? *shudders*
    – There’s no topic to the poster (ok I’m no expert but just IMHO):
    – The title is not striking enough, and fighting colours with the reddsih backgroun
    – No slogans/motto/teasers/info
    – Unbalanced art (don’t know how to explain that) create uneasiness/intriguingness(?) with the audience, a promo poster is not supposed to do that.
    – Unidentifiable creature, general ppl can’t relate to that 😦

    On the game (from what I’ve seen so far):
    Need a bit more work conceptualising it. Currently it looks like a mash of anything/everything you can think of. If the goal of the game is for people to submit their fanart or something for cards then it’s alright. Serious rethinking of the goals of the project is needed if it’s not.
