A branded mobile game in which two scorpions battle on a bar top.

Jose Cuervo was looking for a mobile game that brand ambassadors could take to bars and events and share with consumers to spread product awareness. They approached us with a very short timeline, and the game was made in just over 3 weeks. Our main visual reference (in addition to the brand guidelines) was a stylized commercial for Cuervo Cinge, featuring a scorpion entering a bar, and spraying fire. Using that as a jumping off point, we created a rock, paper, scissors style fighting game, featuring two scorpions facing off on top of a bar.
Due to the short timeframe, I combined the creation of user flow and UI documents with the creation of the 2d assets themselves. This was a challenge, but was made easier by the strong branding Cuervo provided, and the stylized nature of the game.
Each player would select the three moves they wanted their scorpion to do, then watch the battle unfold. We wanted to make the game in 3D, but still capture the strong 2D imagery from the campaign. We acheived this using custom shaders, and a library of 2d fx sprite sheets.
