A Look Back – The Evolution of the GlooskapOn Oct 17, 2014 A Look Back | Design & Development 3 Comments
One thing we decided early on was that the upgrade in fidelity of the game would mean we’d have to think about a new design for the, nameless, boat from TAG.
As a starting point for our new boat’s hull design we looked at a lot of examples of toy boats. Plastic boats like these influenced the initial design of the boat quite a bit.
This was the first sketch I received from Christine after our initial brain-storming sessions. I loved the colors and the hull shape right away, but I wanted to do something different with the sail.
Using my mad Photoshop skills I hacked this together as a rough example of how I thought the sail and player should be positioned.
Keep in mind that when the game is finished you’ll be able to select from alternate skins and customize your own as well. We look forward to seeing what you’ll come up with!
