Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I'm looking for someone who can design an icon for a top-down cartoon style zombie game that I developed. Below are some details that I would like to be part of the icon, but feel free to do what you feel best as a designer.

About The Game:

The game is designed for Mac/PC and will be presented within the platforms App Store for free. The game is a top-down shooter zombie survival game. The user has the ability to choose from an arsenal of weapons such as pistols, shotguns and rocket launchers.

The game itself is fairly simple. Basic concept of running around, shooting zombies, wave after wave, opening up new areas of the map via spending game coins, buying/upgrading weapons with game coins.

The game design is fairly serious cartoon with a grimey, dirty overlay but with slightly high contrasting colours. It also has a slight hint of an arcade theme to it. For example, coins explode out of the zombies once you've killed them, and will fly towards the player. Player can also get combo moves, and skilled shots (such as headshot), that appear on the screen as text in a very arcade manor.

About The Icon:

The icon needs to be catchy and fun looking, but also needs to resemble the game in someway, whether thats the same colour palette or theme. It doesn't necessarily need to use the same graphics from the game, but it does need to be in some cartoon form. I don't want the icon looking completely flat, I know it's 2D, but try and emphasise using gradients, highlights and shadows (subtly). Also, the icon should be all graphic (no text, or title).

The icon needs to be 1024x1024 - 300p/i, but bear in mind that the end result size will be a normal sized logo (100 x 100), so it can't be too detailed else the end user wont be able to see it too clearly when its shrunk down. I'll need the full PSD when I've selected the winner.

I like the idea of having a icon border, but having the character (or something of interest) appearing, or protruding out of the border. Like this:

Notice how the character is protruding the border? It gives a nice strong impact, I believe.


Other icons I like the look of:

I like this look of this as a zombie:

    Best icon is currently between @DoctorRomchik, and @Bebolum. I'm going to need some time to figure out what else it needed. But so far, good job guys!

      If I were not be downloading the app, I would be more likely to download the app if the icon was one of @DoctorRomchik designs.
