As you may have noticed things are starting to change around here. With our Kickstarter launch now less than a month away we decided it’s about high time to present our new logo for BaRPiG. Since getting the original sketches, we have anxiously been waiting to reveal MJ’s hard work. I can’t stress how much of a milestone it is to finally release her work. So without further ado, here it is:
For those of you new to the scene, the name BaRPiG is a parody of our game’s previous prototype version: BaRPG. The joke comes from our feedback as we noticed much confusion about how to pronounce the name of our game. The most common error was to sound it out Bar…uh…Barpig? We decided to just go with it. After all, pigs are undeniably cute and would make the perfect mascot for our Kickstarter Launch.
On top of this we’re also starting to receive some of the first sketches of our pig characters. MJ did another great job working alongside us to create some truly unique characters. To quote her directly:
“Drawing these characters has been fantastic – I’ve loved developing them to match their descriptions, and researching and drawing and inking them – it has brought me so much joy, and I feel almost like I know each one of them. So thanks for giving me these to draw, for making me feel excited about what I draw and the BaRPiG Project!”
Well the feeling is mutual MJ – thanks for being such a great illustrator. Though we’ll be keeping the characters under wraps for now, we can’t help but leak just a little bit of a hint of what’s to come:
March looms ever closer…
But (as usual) till then keep questing you fine BaRPiGS!
