Life On The Farm - A Consistent Feel

Life On The Farm - A Consistent Feel Cover Image For Life On The Farm

One challenge with working on a project part-time is the variation in the look and feel of the models created.   I didn't have a good sense of whether I wanted the game to feel realistic or cartoony.  I didn't know if I wanted something that felt modern or pseudo-historical.  That generated a wide variation in the assets I created.  But I finally found some reference images that were close to what I wanted, so I went back and started updating the assets, concentrating on keeping everything consistent.

The look I decided on is a cartoony, modern, mid-United States, small town feel.   I've overdone the lattice warp-look to the buildings, but I can tone that down as I get closer to finalizing the entire asset library.

The look is certainly going to evolve, but for now, I'm happy with the look and feel of the overall board layout.
