Contest Brief

I am currently developing a new arcade style game for PC (Windows, Mac and Linux), much in the style of "Geometry Wars". (see: [url removed, login to view] for an example). The name of it will be "Field of Void".

The logo needs to have the words "Field of Void" on it. It can be a very simple style logo, completely up to the designer's creativity. It will just need to fit in with the design of the main menu. It can even be a nice simple basic typographic logo, I'm not too fussed.

I need to have a main menu designed with 4 buttons; 3 modes "Arcade", "Story", "Survival" and a "Settings" button. It should also include the logo. I am quite open with how it looks as I do not really have a specific style guide currently, however it should reflect the game with the bright variety of colours with some bloom on a black or dark background. Also, the font can be decided by the designer.

I also need a simple in-game interface designed which consists of: score text, combo text, health bar, and 2 other "upgrades" bars, which will just be smaller bars than the health one. This UI should follow similar design to the main menu.

The minimum window size will be 800px wide by 600px high and if the design is scalable, or at least just possible that I can move things on larger windows, that would be great.

I will require PSD/s and JPG/s from the winning designer.

Please ask if you need any further guidelines. Thanks and good luck!

      Hi, the minimum size of the interface will be 800x600, and if it can scale well, that would be great.

      Thanks!

      Hello!
      We are thinking in a mixture between Classic Asteroids and Geometry Wars for the asthetics, with a modern and simplified twist. We will try to incorporate the Starcraft UI into the menus. Is it a mobile game or a PC game?
      Thank you :)

      Perfect thank you. The game will be for PC. I should probably update the brief to include that. Thanks!

    Hey Mate i started to design your stuff :) I planned to do some 3D text for the logo it can give a nice sharp view in the main menu of the game and also it can be used as an icon for the game :)
