ARTISANS OF SPLENDENT VALE
“Artisans of Splendent Vale" is a cooperative roleplaying game set in a land of adventure and magic.
My role: Creative direction, game logo design, overall game look, iconography, card user interface design, wooden meeples, book covers, book slipcase, action book layout design, character sheets with maze designs, counter dials, pencils, and color system.
The challenge: To build a new world based on the writings of Nikki Valens where players get a full immersive game experience with extensive game components. We developed in-world character concepts, monsters, map terrains, sources of magic, an in-world written "language", color systems, creative worksheets, and more. Supportive items were also developed such as game themed erasers and pencils. The game was then translated into marketing web banners, print ads, and online videos on social media sites. The game reached 20 times its goal on Kickstarter.
Credits: The game design mechanic and story was created by Nikki Valens. Illustrations by Cleonique Hilsaca, Lisa Pearce, Lil Chin, & MK Castaneda. 'Artisans of Splendent Vale' was produced and published by Renegade Game Studios.
