In February I work with new publisher Restoration Games to revive a game from 1979. Bringing it to the modern hobby boardgames market. Rob Daviau (Pandemic Legacy) Handled the game redesign and I got to re-imagine the board and character art. The art direction was to bring the colourful noir style I developed for my game Suspicion to this family deduction game. Redesigning the characters was fun and playful work. The board for the game though offered more of a challenge for me to get my teeth into. It is a large board representing a shopping district in a city with four distinct locations. It would have been easy to make a sterile cross section but I really wanted it to feel like a living environment. The balance of interesting and details and space for the gameplay without making a play space that was too gamerly was the task I set myself.
