Here is my logo ideas. I haven't try anything fancy yet for the logo, but I want to use the symbols of AC and DC and fuse them together. So far, I like the one at the top left, it can be the in-game (loading) logo.
These are some ideations for Edison, I want him to look a bit crazy with some goggles.
These are some machine design with the idea of phonograph and turn it into a robot. This is Edison's robot, as well as a boss in the game maybe...
Here is ideations for Tesla.
Tesla's wife, a character that will appear in the game also...
Here is some paintings I did so far for the characters:
Still a work in progress, and i think i want the full title to be "Spark Gap Future"
Any feed back?
Story change as well.
I was talking with Frankie about this during lunch and i want to see what you guys think. The story will play off the idea of what would have happened if Tesla and Edison never stopped working together. the cut throat business approach of Edison driving the sheer intelligence of Tesla. What the world could have been like 60 years later (around 1950) if Tesla never left after not receiving the 50k, perhaps over time for not having stood up to Edison he would have become a weaker person, wealthy yes, but basically just a puppet of Edison.
If i had to pick a moral for the story it would be standing up for yourself and what you believe in.
So there are two ways this story can go, either we are that weaker Tesla from the future coming back to the past to tell his younger self to stand up to Edison and quit the company, OR we are young Tesla who makes a mistake during an experiment and gets sent to this dystopian future that is ruled by a very old and powerful Edison. Young Telsa will inevitably stumble upon the truth through game play/story moments that this is his doing and that he must find his way back to the past to fix the mistake he was originally going to make.
I'm already way more excited about this story than my last one.
So feel free to tell me what you think or if you have ideas to build upon it.
