Civil War 1862 | UI & Logo Design
Civil War II: 1862 is the prequel to the highly acclaimed Civil War: 1863, incorporating the detailed strategic gameplay of the original while adding major new features and improvements such as flank attacks and strategic movement. Melee combat has also been given greater emphasis and the range of troop quality has been expanded to include elite units.
Continuing on from the success of the original game Civil War 1863, the developers at Hunted Cow Studios were looking for a design that would work within their current framework. As a follow up prequel, it was important that the design still had the essence of the original, but provided a little more eye candy that would tie the game nicely into the setting and environment. Historical settings are always interesting to research, and this was essential to make sure that the assets, backgrounds and overall appearance were suitable for a title with such a specific period setting.
Outside of the design, it was also important that the UX was familiar to the fans of the original, but added a little something extra. Each screen was designed to allow for 16:9 4:3 and 3:2 aspect ratios.
The commission also included the design of the HUD, Icons and Logo.
Civil War II: 1862 is a wonderful tactical game, a worthy successor to the original, and perfect for tablet play. You can now download the game from the iOS AppStore below!
