Wow, we’re almost done with all the art for Story War! The photo set above is just 10 of the 90 original pieces of art we’ve created for our card game.
The basic premise of Story War is that you have to use visual cues from the artwork as well as allusions to popular culture or mythology to convince a player acting as a judge that your character could beat your opponent’s character in a fight. It’s really creative and fun! Read more about the game here.
Here’s a word from our artist, Vondell, about his work on the game:
It’s a big challenge to breathe life into 60 characters, not only in a way that makes them interesting to look at but also in a way that makes them interesting to play! Although all of our warriors are based on notable cultural myths and legends, what we’re really doing here is creating original characters to populate an original world. In that respect, making the art for Story War has felt less like making a card game and more like building a fantasy world and its inhabitants from the ground up. We’ve got a great mix of cool, fun, and occasionally really creepy, and it all adds up to some really genuinely great open-ended gameplay potential.
