It’s that time again for another Meow Wars update. First, thanks to everyone who provided feedback over social media on the new logo!
After receiving most of the art from @ugly_ink, it was clear that the early art I had put together needed to evolve. I feel the direction of the game is now more 80’s Saturday morning cartoon. Here are some of the other logos that were up for consideration:
This also meant an update to the game board itself. I want to make it more interactive when you encounter each character. Eventually, I’ll have each character animated with reactions and speaking as they taunt you during play.
Along with the new logo, I started to put together an updated UI.
As usual, here are the newest character portraits released since the last blog post.
All Character art by the amazingly talented Sam Moore of @ugly_ink.
Don’t be tricked by Captain Cuddles! He comes from the 🌴 tropical region of Claw Mountain. Be careful with your cards ♣️ as he’s very fond of hoarding them in his backpack. He’s also the biggest copycat out there, don’t let him take pictures with his secret spy camera 📸.
When he’s not busy “chattering” at the birds, Special Ops Oscar is always ready for battle. First he will distract you with his laser pointer, then get you with his water gun.
Out in the Cat-scades, Sergeant Snowball roams the snow. Always sharpening his nails on his scratching posts, he hisses at approaching enemy cats.
Lieutenant Luna heads the Feline Ultra Rescue Rangers (FURR) team. She helps guide you through your missions and identifies the dangerous cats you will encounter.
Thanks for checking out what I’ve been working on. I’m excited to show more of the Spine animations I’ve been working on, but I’ll have to leave that for another update!
