Game art for Hybrid and Hyper Casual Games

Hybrid casual games combine elements from multiple genres including casual game genres. As a result, these games have diverse art styles that include realistic, cartoony, pixel art, or minimalist aesthetics. In return, hyper-casual games are well-known for their simple yet eye-catching visuals with bright colors, bold shapes, and minimalist designs.

However, the key difference between them is the addition of a metagame. The metagame in hybrid casual games often involves strategic decision-making, progression systems, and resource management. In contrast, the metagame in hyper-casual games revolves around social elements, competition, and achievement.

Why Outsource Different Video Game Genres?

For various game developers and studios, outsourcing main video game genres offers several advantages such as expertise, cost-efficiency, flexibility, faster time-to-market, focus on core competencies, and access to the global talent pool.

It helps to overcome resource constraints, accelerate development timelines, and deliver high-quality games that resonate with players across a wide range of genres.

Talent available in outsourcing companies

Game companies often struggle with transitioning between different graphic styles, such as from realistic to stylized, or from 2D game art services to 3D game art services. We understand that each game genre often requires a specific aesthetic to effectively convey its themes and mechanics.

Our specialists know how to adapt your project to diverse art styles to match different game genres. We offer a professional team of artists skilled in multiple graphic styles and techniques. Whether your project calls for detailed realism, vibrant cartoonish graphics, or pixel-perfect retro art, our team has the expertise to bring your vision to life with outstanding creativity.

As you know, every trending game genre comes with its own set of technical demands, ranging from high-detail environments in first-person shooters to the need for optimized game assets in mobile games. Navigating these technical requirements is daunting for game companies, particularly if they lack the necessary expertise or resources.

In general, our studio specializes in providing comprehensive game development services, offering clients access to a wealth of technical expertise. As our team consists of professionals with extensive experience, we can easily handle diverse technical requirements across various game genres.

For a lot of game companies, grasping the visual preferences and expectations of diverse player bases for each genre sounds scary. It’s pretty understandable: different genres attract distinct audiences, making it very important to tailor the games accordingly to ensure maximum engagement.

As we recognize how important is to understand player audiences for creating successful games, we leverage detailed market research and ASO soft launch services. Due to these instruments, we can analyze player feedback to gain insights into the visual preferences and expectations of different target audiences for each genre.

One of the biggest challenges for game companies is developing genre-specific animation poses. Different game genres require different types of animation, from dynamic action sequences in first-person shooters to subtle simulation movements in simulation games.

Our studio specializes in providing unique animation services tailored to the needs of each game genre. With our experienced animators, we can provide you with excellent genre-specific game animation services.

Each game genre has its unique gameplay mechanics, visual style, and user interaction patterns, making it difficult for game companies to design UI elements on their own.

Whether it’s creating streamlined HUD elements for action-packed shooters or minimalist interfaces for casual puzzle games, our team has the expertise to deliver bright UI/UX game designs and provide quality services that easily dive players into the gaming experience.

Our Work: Game Genres with Examples

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

The genre of video games that is most dependent on art in production varies depending on the specific aesthetic and design choices of each game. One such genre is the “action-adventure” with stunning landscapes, detailed character models, and smooth animations. Games like “The Legend of Zelda” or “Uncharted” are excellent examples where art plays a crucial role in creating unforgettable worlds and pleasant experiences.

Similarly, the “role-playing game” emphasizes rich storytelling, expansive worlds, and diverse character customization. Games such as “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” or “Final Fantasy” showcase the importance of art in creating outstanding RPG experiences.

Other big game genres like platformers, puzzle games, and strategy games also require significant artistic input, albeit in slightly different ways. Platformers often rely on interesting level design and character animations, puzzle games focus on intricate visual clues and environmental details, while strategy games require detailed unit designs.

Character design is a very important aspect of game development across the biggest game genres. Here are some tips and techniques tailored to some of them:

Action-Adventure/RPG:

  • Focus on creating characters with distinct personalities and traits that resonate with the game’s narrative and setting.
  • Pay attention to the character’s silhouette to ensure they are easily recognizable, especially in fast-paced action sequences.

 

Platformer:

  • Emphasize responsiveness and agility in character design to ensure smooth and precise controls for players.
  • Experiment with different shapes and proportions to create characters that stand out amidst complex level designs.

 

Puzzle Games:

  • Create characters with subtle visual cues that hint at their abilities or role in solving puzzles.
  • Use color psychology to evoke emotions and guide players’ attention to important elements within the game.

Yes, as an art outsourcing studio, we specialize in providing high-quality game assets for various 2D game genres. Whether you need character designs, background art, animation sprites, or UI elements, we can tailor our services to meet your specific needs.

We excel in providing top-tier art assets for a wide range of 3D game genres. From concept art design to polished final game assets, we work closely with developers to ensure that our artwork aligns seamlessly with the aesthetic and gameplay experience of the project.

The most profitable game genre is action-adventure. Popularized by franchises like Grand Theft Auto, Assassin’s Creed, and Red Dead Redemption, action-adventure games feature interesting storytelling, open-world exploration, and a blend of action-packed gameplay elements. Their ability to offer engaging narratives and diverse gameplay experiences has contributed to their huge profitability.

Shooter games, including first-person shooters like Call of Duty and third-person shooters like Gears of War, have a massive global audience. Their competitive multiplayer modes, extensive customization options, and frequent content updates lead to high player retention rates and ongoing revenue streams through microtransactions and DLC.

RPGs, such as The Elder Scrolls and The Witcher, are known for their deep storytelling and character progression. Many RPGs offer expansive universes with countless hours of gameplay, making them appealing to a dedicated fan base willing to invest in expansions, DLC, and in-game purchases.

MMO games like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV have built large player communities over the years, leading to consistent revenue streams from subscription fees, expansions, in-game purchases, and merchandise sales. Their persistent worlds, social features, and ongoing content updates encourage long-term player engagement and high profitability.

Here are some easiest game genres to make for solo developers:

  • Puzzle Games

Puzzle games have straightforward mechanics and relatively simple art requirements compared to other genres. Solo developers can focus on designing engaging puzzles and levels without the need for extensive narrative or complex gameplay systems.

  • Platformers

Platformer games offer a good balance between simplicity and creativity. While they may require some level of programming skill for character movement and level design, they often don’t necessitate large teams or extensive resources for development.

  • Roguelikes

Roguelike and roguelite games feature procedurally generated levels and permadeath mechanics, which can reduce the need for handcrafted content. Solo developers can focus on creating robust procedural generation algorithms and gameplay mechanics that encourage replayability.
