We've just concluded our five-day-long community event, whereby Trixel Creative community members across the web and social platforms had the chance to participate in an exciting scavenger hunt activity! Two puzzle pieces containing a fragment of the full artwork were hidden each day across the website (with hints). We saw so many of you finding and submitting these hidden pieces at the speed of lightning... great work, guys!
Since the 'Restitched Key Art Scavenger Hunt' event has just ended with all pieces being discovered by our lovely community, we couldn't be more excited to show it off everywhere and talk a bit about it below!
The Restitched key art is truly the ultimate face of the game. The image will be used on storefront pages, physical products and slipcovers, promotional media, thumbnails, and beyond. The purpose of the artwork is to capture the essence of the game no matter where you see it.
The bright and vivid colors draw in focus and create a sense of excitement. The fabric hills, ornamental flowers, cardboard pyramids, tissue clouds, and ribbon walkway are all elements that are true to the crafty aesthetic we've been building. You will also catch a glimpse at some of the story locations we're working on for the game's main adventure.
The key art also very prominently features an all-new Stuffy! The new model was not a decision taken lightly and we were faced with many obstacles while making it happen. Ultimately, we agreed that it was the best decision to make and we're very satisfied with the final results! This new version of Stuffy was built with optimization in mind, both for gameplay and graphics. Stuffy is now shorter, squattier, and 'softer around the edges'. As a result of this change, Stuffy is much more teddy-bear-like and stands out on their own as a unique protagonist character. They will also be easier to control and animate for gameplay... plus they're just reeaally cute!
The Restitched brand design style also had a makeover, which you may have noticed with the new logo! We'll be rolling out then new style and updating existing media over time. Additionally, we're still working to readapt old cosmetics to the new Stuffy model, so please 'bear' with us as we provide updated outfit renders going forward!
