From weird to perfect – designing bacteria

From weird to perfect – designing bacteria

We are currently working on new game project called Bacteria. One of the early challenges was creating bacterias. It may seem easy but actually it´s pretty hard to create likeable bacteria. 🙂 After a while our graphic artist David came with first idea. It looked like this.
1st design of bacteria
Quite scary and looks like face, doesn´t it? 🙂 It definitely needed to be changed.

Second design was much better and looked very „artistic“. The only problem was that it turned out not to be very suitable for mobile game and may seem little confusing.

We then decided to give it more regular shape that should be more user friendly. So here is result.
