Well, I was in the middle of designing a new box for Cretan Labyrinth and realised I really need a logo to put on the box. I’ve been deliberating over this for some weeks and finally decided to take the plunge today. I scoured the net for other game company logos to get some inspiration. I’m not really a graphics artist, but I do know a couple things: KISS – It has to be relatively simple since it will be shown in a variety of sizes and needs to be easy to spot without getting lost. Eye Catching – it needs a catchy shape and some colour, but not too much.
So, here’s what I came up with. What d’yall think? Comments are welcome!
Posted this on my personal FB site a while back because I’m a web programmer. I thought it also applied to game creation and publishing. So, so much work in creating a game, testing it (ok, that’s not so much like work), tweaking it, testing it again and again (yeah, yeah, I know), and making prototype after prototype. Then there’s publishing – seems to be far more work than the original creation. What I’m saying is, there’s a great deal of work getting all aspects to work together, getting people to take notice and so much more behind the scenes things that nobody sees.
Had a dream a couple nights ago. It was about a new game about inventing, which is apropos since I’m an inventor. It’s just in concept stage at this point and I won’t be able to work on it for a while – I have too much to work on and think about right now with Cretan Labyrinth, and the others on this site (designing a great game involves a surprising amount of work). But basically players discover old and new technologies and have to create new inventions from them. The creator or discoverer holds the patent and other players may lease the patent for their new invention.
Should be an interesting and educational game. This is one that would be valuable at home, in libraries and schools. My Spidey senses tell me there will be at least a couple different versions (age groups) and/or expansion packs as well.
Tuesday night is our regular game night from 5:00 to 9:00. We usually meet in the Great Room in the downtown library, but that library is under renovation for the next month. Instead we are meeting in the Rutland library. Come join us for a fun evening playing board games!
A new world of gaming!
Welcome to a new world of gaming entertainment. At Anconn Entertainment we develop and build a variety of new and intriguing board games.
I built the prototypes of all of the games you see here on this site more than 30 years ago. With the recent resurgence of board games I will be marketing them soon.
