HOG Cursed Crown – 2D Character Illustration and Fantasy Backgrounds

RetroStyle Games was responsible for full game art production for a Haiku Games Project in the Adventure Escape series titled Cursed Crown. The game may be described as a hidden object puzzle adventure, and we created character art, backgrounds, puzzle art, and promo assets for the project.

2D art for Cursed Crown was inspired by high fantasy works like the Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, and fantasy games. High fantasy is characterized by a well-developed world, the presence of magic users, fantastic beasts, and an epic plot. Our team tried to meet the demands of the fans of the genre by studying highly esteemed works and illustrations.

Character Concept Art

It can be challenging to create 2D art for a fantasy game because the expectations of players are set very high. Hence, our artists pay close attention to the smallest details and try to make sure that players are excited to meet wizards, druids, sorceresses, soldiers, and other game character concept art. We are especially proud of a dragon and a tree-like creature created by our artists.

Backgrounds Game Art

Art directors have to ensure that 2D backgrounds meet the standards and match the overall style of the game. We managed to combine different elements of fantasy architecture to depict a broad range of environments, including a throne room, a royal room, a balcony and others.

Puzzle Game Art

Imagine if you went on an adventure in a fantasy world and had to solve a puzzle to proceed forward. Our artists studied the core mechanics of game puzzles to ensure that puzzle art for the game is appropriate and aligned with the setting. We created 2D art for all the puzzles in the game, including a door riddle, a tile puzzle, a chest lock, and others.
