A small video game company currently focusing on iPhone games and apps.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are targeting gamers. Specifically gamers on the iPhone app store. We need an icon that stands out in the crowded app store. Or at least holds it own.
Any person submitting designs should be familiar with app store icon requirements. Specifically the sizing, proper scaling, etc. So we will require all the app store icon images scaled and rendered properly to the appropriate sizes. starting at the largest size of 512x512 for the iTunes store.
57 px, iPhone
72 px, iPad
114 px, iPhone 4
512 px, iTunes
29 px, iPhone Settings/Spotlight, iPad Settings
And if there are any other sizes that I am not aware of but the designer is.
The icon will be a Demon Box. Which is also the title of the game. The box itself is a deep/dark red. With an eyeball that actually sticks out a little bit on the box. On the side of it I have drawn three small skulls and some bones. But we are open to different creative things on this side. And also a bit of design around the edges would be interesting as well. But that's were you can come up with things and get creative. In the top you can see the box is open, and a bit of a puzzle/dungeon is revealed. Giving a slight sneak preview of what the game may have in store. I have included a screen shot of the actual game play puzzle so you know what to color the blocks and dungeon walls. The overall look and feel should be slightly cartoony. Black background.
And have fun with it. Looking forward to seeing the creativity from the designers. If the game is a hit, willing to pay much more for larger sizes.
