Character Design - Part I
Where do you guys get the inspiration to desig all the characters in you game? We have some excellent artists at Idiocracy Games that created tons of very original characters for our upcoming game,Pirates War. However, some are inspired by, or even homages to real people or other characters. Others may look similar to a few character you already know and love, but it was just pure coincidence.
We have 80+ character now in the game, and we intend to be constantly adding more to the game after it has been released.
Princess Meredith's looks and story were actually inspired by the character Elizabeth Swann from the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies.
Admiral Tarak's looks are inspired by Pirate Captain Barbossa, also a character from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. However, Tarak's and Barbossa background story and personality are completely different.
Suri is a character that coincidentally looks a lot like Brienne of Tarth from HBO's Game of Thrones!
Speaking of GoT, our kind pirate Dum Dum looks a lot like a young Hodor (Mild spoilers: Hang in there big guy. The wounds from that episode haven't healed yet ㅜ.ㅜ )
That's all for today folks!
We'll post even more characters, art and development info every week. You can help us develop the game by joining the beta test in July. Applications for the beta are already open.
