"Keep It Simple Stupid" isn't always easy for simple game graphics
Evolution of simple game graphics for our new game Drive To Survive
Everyone knows the expression Keep It Simple Stupid or the acronym KISS, but sometimes it is really hard to take an existing design and simplify it a lot and still keep it recognizable as the same object. Our most recent game in development “Drive To Survive” had simple isometric designs but we wanted them even simpler to match our very simple background. Pixel artists will probably look at this and say “Oh that’s easy” but imagine as an developer doing your own graphics and being tasked to take something like the “Mona Lisa” and condense it to 50 pixels. In the end we are happy with our decision to go with the really simple look. Let us know if you think we made the right move or if you think that it is just too simple.
