ART CONTEST! Light vs. Darkness 01-2017 1842 2016 andrew

It’s a start of a new year, so why not kick it off with a fan art contest? So much of our fans loved the last art contest we did back in 2016, and we have learned a lot from the contest based on feedback we received from the participants.


HOW TO ENTER

  1. Submit your artwork to the official TinyWars DA Group. You can do this by uploading the artwork to your DeviantArt account and adding it to the DeviantArt group after it has been successfully uploaded to your account.
    How to enter
    In the sidebar of your DeviantArt deviation, you can select “add to a group” and find the TinyWars official Art Group called: “TinyWars-Artwork”
    Please make sure you select the proper folder to submit to: Light vs. Darkness ART CONTEST 1-2017
  2. IMPORTANT: Make sure you include “TinyWars” somewhere in the title of the submission so it can be easily found.

CONTEST DETAILS

Theme

This time the contest will have a theme that the artwork can be related to, that theme is: “Light vs. Darkness”

Some might be asking, “Do I have to make an artwork within the theme?” The answer is no, of course you don’t have to. However, a few of our prize winning slots are specifically for those pieces of artwork that best fit the theme. If you choose to create an entry that doesn’t fit within then theme, then you will most likely not win in any of those categories. HOWEVER, we do have other more general categories such as: “Tiny Theme” and “Cutest Artwork” that don’t have to follow along with the theme.

Just note that at least 3 of our prize winners will be pieces that are related to the theme.

You can choose to depict a battle scene or artwork of Light vs. Darkness, but you may also submit entries that focus on one side, light or darkness. In fact, we will have sub-categories that will cover best “Darkness” and “Light” side artwork.

Contest Deadline:

Start Date: Monday, January 16, 2017 (01/16/17)

Final Submission Date: Monday, February 6, 2017 (02/06/17)

Submission Limitations:

You may enter as many submissions as you’d like to this contest, however you can only ad 1 submission per day. The artwork content can be anything you want it to be, you can tell a story, you can try to keep it within the TinyWars world or you can cross it with your own OC’s or fan art. The only type of artwork that is not allowed is artwork that has nothing to do with TinyWars or artwork that contains nudity. This will be at the digression of the contest judges.

WHERE TO SUBMIT:

Submissions must be made to this DeviantArt folder.
You can also find the “Light vs. Darkness” DeviantArt folder at our official TinyWars DA Group!

*By entering our contest you agree to the Official Contest Rules, Terms & Conditions outlined below.

PRIZES, 12 Winners:

We will be giving away these cute key chains to the winners of this contest. These are 2 inch tall key chains with standard key ring.

The last contest we had 5 winners, but we did not expect so many people to enter our contest so this time we have increased the winners to 12. There will be a minimum 12 prize winners in this contest! If the contest entries get a lot larger than we expect then we will also increase the number of prizes, however for the minimum, it will be 12. (1 key chain per winner)


Character References and Details

TIP: If you google image search “TinyWars + (The name of the character) you will find more than enough references for these characters!

Light Side

The “Light Side” is just a general term used to describe the “good guys” in TinyWars. This terms is not officially recognized in the game as it is simply an easy way to identify the characters for this contest. The members of the light side include: Mary, Suzu, Kim, Amy, Amy’s Older Sister, and possibly Kumo (Nobody knows much about Kumo)?

Character names from left to right: Kumo, Suzu, Kim, Mary, Amy, (Amy’s Older Sister).

Other Characters include:

This is the Stump King, you will see him a lot in the first chapter of TinyWars. He rules of the stump kingdom pictured below.

The stump kingdom is a humble, self sufficient tiny village where most of the food for the entire tiny kingdom is produced.This village serves as the food source for the rest of the tiny kingdom. The whole kingdom is pictured below.

(Top-Middle) Stump Kingdom, (Top-left) The Big People House, (Top-Right) Candy Castle where Amy lives, (Bottom-Left) The Mines, (Bottom-Middle) Main Kingdom covered in a mushroom.

This is the entire Tiny Kingdom. Those shows the place where most of the “good guys” reside.

This Big Girl

We can’t talk much about her, but she is seen in the menus of the game reading the “TinyWars Book” which is basically the menu system for the game. Again, she is a big girl, but technically on the “good” side even though she doesn’t interact much with the tiny people. In fact, that TinyWars book is a book that she uses to collect evidence, and tiny things, her book contains “proof” that the tiny people are real! If I could describe her in one word: Obsessed.

DARK SIDE

Again, the “Dark side” is just a generic term used for the sake of the contest and is never officially used as a label for the antagonists of the TinyWars story, don’t worry we’re not that lazy!

The Darkside is obsessed with the blood of “Mother.” It will be established early on in the game that one of the top theories for the origins of the “tiny people” is a curse put on them by an evil witch for some sins that the tiny people’s ancestors had committed. These details aren’t too important to the “dark side” however what is important is the battle between the tiny people and the witch which happened long ago.

This battle might be a great idea for a contest entry, hint…

The witch ended up finding the tiny people, (as they had stolen from her) and she began stomping on their village (and the tiny people). Eventually all the tiny people banded together and killed the evil witch (With the help of the Crows too.) However, the tiny people (who were already divided into two tribes) had a dispute over what to do with the corpse of the witch. One side in particular (the side we will be calling the “dark side”) decided to eat the flesh and blood of the witch.

THIS is the source of the magic that you see the tiny people using. Some tiny people have access to it, while others do not. MOST (but not all) of those who are on the light side have never partaken in the “blood of mother” and thus are unable to use magic. However, some, such as Kim, are capable of using magic, so it might be interesting to think about what that means for Kim or possibly her family, and why she is able to use magic.

The Crows

The crows are recurring characters in TinyWars, though they are not necessarily “main characters,” they have played an important role. ¬†First, we must establish that one of the food sources for the crows is the tiny people themselves. The crows feast on the tiny people. However, the crows did band together with the tiny people to kill the evil witch, as the evil witch was quickly depleting the crows source of food (tiny people). Much like the “darkness” side, you can bet that some strange and supernatural things happened to the crows after they helped kill the witch. (Try to imagine, how would crows help kill a person?)

Enemies

Don’t forget that the enemies seen in the TinyWars Prototype are also considered “Dark Side” material.

Other than that, we really can’t go into too much detail about the lore and story of TinyWars without spoiling it too much. Hope this information is helpful! Good luck and mos importantly, HAVE FUN!

What We’ve Learned About TinyWars

What We’ve Learned About TinyWars 1560 1040 andrew

Post Fan Art Competition – Popular Character? Oh Yeah!

popularity-indicator

This is a popularity indicator generated based on results from our contest’s Judges. The lovely character Kumo, appears to be an extremely popular character being featured in 23/70 entries. What this tells us is that, regarding the pacing of the game and how long we spend time with each character, Kumo’s arc should be lengthened to satisfy the demand for this character. (But not too long, part of this character’s appeal is her mysterious aura and backstory.)

kumo-fan-arts

Artists from top, left to right: SoloEsper01, Janthida, Hyperion-Yamazaki, MiahWolf, emiyana, iorisu

What does this mean for the rest of the cast?

drawxangel-all-the-girls

Contest Entry by DrawXAngel

The rest of the cast won’t¬†be¬†changed or redesigned. Their designs are solid and each of them have their own unique story!¬†There is currently no game content of TinyWars or even any story really released yet, so I do not have any concern about Kumo’s popularity over the rest of the girls. Kumo was specifically designed to look “mysterious” and “intriguing.”

Progress Update For Gameplay Prototype

As scheduled, the gameplay prototype should be ready for play testing this month! We have currently finished implementing the final wave to this prototype level. As far as the game’s content goes, it is complete! However there are a few more technical features that need to be completed before the prototype is ready for testing, these include:

TO DO LIST

  • Implement a “Level Complete” screen at the end of the level
  • Implement a basic menu system (Provide developer info, build info, and basic menu options)
  • Disable the incredibly buggy “fast forward” feature (It’s not going to work for this build!)
  • Actually do a play through and make sure it is POSSIBLE to beat the demo with perfect health!
  • Might leave the test controls enabled so people can have fun experimenting with the game. (Spawns enemies, adds money, etc.)

spore-1

Remember this little test creature that looks like it was drawn in MS Paint? We’ve grown quite fond of it.

spore-2-new

His sprite has been enhanced by our lovely artist, LaDollBlanche.

Things to Consider

Many features of this gameplay prototype will be changed in future builds and demos. Particularly the menu system and general theme of the GUI will be revised to fall more in line with the “tiny” theme. Certain enemy sprites and enemies themselves might be changed.

sleepy-2

The prototype is one single sandbox level. It was designed simply so we could develop all the features that the TinyWars game would run on. There are some specific advanced features that have not been implemented, but we have implemented the core features that most of the levels will run on! (We have a few special levels planned)

mushy-2

Because this prototype is designed for testing, there are a variety of enemies that spawn in each wave. In a normal level we would not have this much variety of enemies. Ideally, we would want to build it up, or keep all the enemies within a specific theme. In this prototype you will encounter a bunch of different enemies that look like they came from all sorts of different places. It ¬†looks like a mess on screen and doesn’t have any predictability to it.

spider-test-1

Why Tower Defense?

The purpose of this gameplay prototype is to show off some unique features of TinyWars and show that this is NOT your ordinary tower defense game. Someone had suggested to me that we call this a “Siege Game” because “Tower Defense” has such negative associations with it. Specifically tower defense is seen as an old, “dead” and over done genre of video games that is usually associated with people’s first games.

I have a feeling that tower defense, especially for mobile is still a pretty strong genre. Games like Radiant Defense which had been on the app store’s top list several times and other great TD games are all inspirations for TinyWars. However, I will say that I am generally disappointed with most tower defense games that are anime themed. Why do I want to play anime themed games? Is it to see overly sexualized witches with subpar gameplay? No of course not… (I mean I guess some people wouldn’t have a problem with that!)

Why anime theme in general?

Because we have a compelling story to tell. The anime artwork and design is an art style we choose to go with because we have a particularly interesting and engaging story to tell. I know other “anime” games use the anime theme for the sake of being anime, but we have our motivations and I hope that our hard work, whether in writing or in the gameplay, will not go unnoticed!

Interested in Beta Testing?

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for the prototype, the easiest way to get in touch with us is through our facebook page!

https://www.facebook.com/TinyWarsGame/

Feel free to send us a message and tell us that you’re interested in becoming a beta tester. It’s going to be pretty easy, nothing much you have to do besides play the game and if possible, do a screen recording of the gameplay! Simple right? ūüôā

Fan Art Contest 2016 (Time Extension!!!) 1494 959 andrew

Important Announcement!!!

We have received SO MANY fan art submissions in the final days of our contest, please check them out! On top of this, many of the art groups that we actively post on have members who felt like they “missed out” on the contest. So many people said they totally would have entered this contest if only they knew about it in the first place.

We are officially extending the contest by 1 week. The new contest ending date is 9/19/16.

The official DeviantArt group for the competition is here! 

Increasing Winners

In order to be fair to those who have already entered before the original date, we are going to be adding MORE WINNERS to this contest! We will be adding two additional winners to this contest. These two additional winners can apply to any category in our original list of categories:

  • Best Overall Artwork (1 x winner)
  • Best Fit for “Tiny” Theme (2 x winners)
  • Most Unique Style¬†(1 x winner)
  • Creator’s Pick¬†(1 x winner)

On top of these original 5 winning categories, we will also be adding 2 extra that can apply to ANY CATEGORY!

7 Winners Total

It might not sound like a lot of winners, however we had never expected to have received as many submissions as we did! Had we known we were going to get over 25 submissions for this contest we would have ordered way more wallscrolls! Please understand, these wallscrolls do cost us money, and as of right now TinyWars is literally bringing in $0 in revenue. This contest, the wallscrolls, are all investments into our marketing strategy.

deviant-art-submissions-2016

And I have to say that I am really pleased with how great this contest has turned out. Our fans are incredibly awesome for making fan art for this contest! I would share some of our favorite submissions, however I feel like that might seem a bit unfair to entrants. We will wait til the contest officially ends on 9/19/16 before announcing the winners, AND honorable mentions!

She is in charge of defenses at the Candy Castle and operates a gumball canon. Why does this character not have a name?
