9 Empires is a successful game that already exists in China and the United States with a different name. Now we want to bring this game to the european market with a new name and of course a new logo.
The game is a mix of a Role-Playing Game (RPG) and Real Time Strategy (RTS) and it is set in medieval times.
Here is some artwork of the game to set the mood:
The target audience is obviously gamers who like medieval fantasy games. I don't think there is much to explain.
This time there are no rules. You can do whatever you want to come up with a great logo. You can render it in 3D, you can add fancy effects, you can do whatever you want. Just go crazy.
Should you decide to go with a pixel format rather than vectors, please make sure you design it in a very high resolution (at least 3500px wide) and on transparent background.
After some investigation into some existing logos for RPG/RTS games, we liked the approach of the Runes of Magic logo very much.
We like combination of the bright font and the blue backlight. Yet we think the whole approach is too much oriental and should be more medieval.
Even though we already have a general direction in mind, you shouldn't hesitate to try something different aswell. We are completely open to everything.
