Post news Report RSS Weekly Recap #1: Lore, Concept Art and Game Design

While prototyping a few nice mechanics for the game, we worked a lot on the Artistic Direction of Nanotale. We did a few concept arts which are not the in-game art but more like a way to convey some ideas we would like in Nanotale, but also color researches and more.
