I'm getting ready to launch Patent Blaster in mid-March, which means taking care of all the little details - like getting a proper logo for the game! So far, I've been using this rather anodyne image of a derpy elephant:


Which is all right and all, but it doesn't exactly bring across what the game is about: making patents die violently. So this is the new one:


I made this one bigger so you can see it's better than the old one! Because I'm fairly literal-minded (other game projects include such titles as "Space Exploration", where you explore space, and "UFO", where you fly around in a flying saucer), this logo contains:

  1. Patents
  2. Blasting

Apart from the logo, I've been reading a lot about game marketing and talking to the press, for which I can recommend the excellent Pixel Prospector. The website and payment processor are also coming along nicely, and it should all be ready by middle of March.

Remember:  Hover-Elephant Hover-Elephant knows where you live.

Wouldn`t a lawyer holding a paper with the title "Pattent Nr. 1" explode in his hand be a better logo, and more literal? :)

You have a very good point, though I think you can get sued for depicting lawyers in danger these days.

If by drawing a person in a suit in danger can get you sued... I for one don`t want to live in your country. :)

Nah, I was just being snarky. I don't live in the UK anymore, so I should be fine.
