About Redemption Games
Redemption Games is a mobile gaming company that specializes in casual games. Redemption Games is all about creating immersive games with engaging art and compelling gameplay.
Shade is a game in the classic format of an interactive novel, where players have to make decisions that will affect further events. In addition to the choice-based gameplay, the game offers an exciting match-3 component.
We had a massive task to create all the 2D visuals for the game, so we decided to work according to the time-tested pipeline.
Our goal was to create all 2D game art: characters, environments, illustrations, backgrounds, splash screens, and covers in accordance with the requirements for style.
Our challenge was to create realistic 2D art which at the same time will be quite lightweight and appealing for casual players playing on mobile devices.
