Hey this week we are looking at the next Kobble update with art for the observer, golem, and troll!
To see more things Kobble and stay up to date with the progress of the game as well as, the soon to be kickstarter you can visit the kobble website!
Here’s the Golem!
The Golem as an early character to determine the way LARGE characters were going to look. He also required that extra flare so the staple characters were different from traditional fantasy versions. Instead of a human sculpted from rock it takes its shape from the materials around it. The idea I thought of was showing the first moments when this character comes to life and how they are slow lumbering characters that can take a lot of damage. The first golem was specifically a tower but lacked the bulkiness we wanted to show, so it transformed from a tower to a wall!
One of my personal favorites to play in the game, there were a lot of sketches done to get him just right. The main thing with these kind of characters is to not get too specific and to choose a moment when you had just seen them in the street. The card has a lot of stink themed attacks so balancing all the different things we choose swamp colors and flies buzzing to add that idea of smell.
The warrior is another of the three classic fantasy classes and we knew it would be where all warrior type classes branch off from. In an endless city like kobble that is full of violence we decided that almost everything shouldn’t look new. The fancier stuff would be well kept but the majority of metal would be rusty, clothes should be dirty, and the designs should also look like they didn’t take a lot of time or craft to make. The silhouette is important for the warrior too. so many different sketches were done to make sure the stance was just right!
Thanks for looking and I hope you are excited about next weeks update as I am!
Kobble is a card game about fantasy organized crime set in the endless city of Kobble. Each time you play, you tell the story of two rival gangs battling for control of one of the city’s many neighborhoods. The two gangs will engage in a series of bloody battles for control over the various locations within a neighborhood. In the end, the gang that wins more fights will control the neighborhood, and the other will be forced out. The game can be played cooperatively or competitively with 1-6 players.
