Tiny Trains is a mobile sandbox game. At Recurious we wanted to let players create their own train worlds from a tilted top-down view that mimicked 3D space. I was hired on as a Visual and Motion Graphic Designer until the project was halted half a year later.
After we figured and decided to go toward a faux-3D look, I began to explore ways a train might work with an animatable vector model that I built.
Prototypes that I designed to give the team solutions to a few of the challenges we faced when developing assets and implementing them into a working game.
