Life On The Farm - A Consistent Feel
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.
