I was overjoyed to work on the new site for Aztez as it was for one of my oldest and longest standing customers! The game has a very, very distinct and awesome look to it so the brief was self explanatory before even reading a word…I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
As this game has got such a distinct look to it and uses only black, white and red I knew we were going to have a very bold site at the end of the design process. I threw quite a few hours into making this one special, designing in some subtle parallax effects and making sure it really felt like a true extension of the game. Keep your eyes locked onto this one as with Matthew Wegner and Ben Ruiz at its helm, its going to be one epically playable beast!
When creating any game related website the goal is always to tie the website into the actual game as closely as possible. To extend the viewer and players experience beyond the game and into the web. Taking all the available concept art, in game art and bespoke promotional art, it is essential to create a world that feels like a literal extension of the game world. To plunge the user deep into the experience of the game from the moment the first page loads.
