Initial Background Concepts - March 31 2008

What do the four center panels demonstrate?
We explored colors and moods with game elements such as enemies as well as differentiation of the RG (real ground) and the UG (underground) worlds.

What media are typically used in the very first conceptual drawings?
We use pencil and paper for practice and brainstorming. For concept art, we turn to Photoshop so that we can more easily visualize the actual screen. 

How well-described are the locations in the game script, and how much is left to the designer’s imagination?
The whole team discussed to decide on the locations. We made sure to display existing landmarks when they were specified in the script, but when a whole street or a general location is indicated, the designers were free to present their ideas as to how to show what elements.

What are the black rectangular boxes for?
They are for checking what will be in the game screen.
