For those of you who have been following my progress over the last little while, you’ll have noticed that things around here have undergone a number of changes. The website has had a few name alterations and has settled now at caradocgames.com, and other details have changed here and there, including the creation of a Downloads page (where you can find links to the games I have released), and a Freelance page (which lists the various games I have written for).
One of biggest things that has happened recently, is that I commissioned a logo for my company. The whole process was a mix of fascinating and exciting, and began (aside from the inquiry emails and picking the designer), with me being asked to fill out a questionnaire about my company. All the ephemera that had been floating around in my mind and jotted here and there needed to be solidified into concepts and written down for someone else to read, and that was a very enjoyable process.
It led me to writing a mission statement or guiding principle for Caradoc Games, a set of loose ideas and goals that had to be hammered together into a couple of sentences.
Caradoc Games makes small press role-playing games with an emphasis on story. Sometimes silly, sometimes serious, sometimes fantasy, sometimes science fiction, and sometimes something completely different.
Caradoc Games aims to create a mix of small projects designed to be fun and engaging, and larger projects designed to bring a narrative experience to the fore.
I’ve added this to the About page here, and summarises the goals and ambitions of the company, in terms of the style of game I intend to release.
The graphic designer that created my logo, which I might add I am absolutely thrilled with, is Khairul Hamden, and you can find his website and portfolio here. His work is amazing, and I am extremely thrilled and proud of the logo he created for Caradoc Games. My great genre loves are science fiction and fantasy, and these both have been neatly etched into the logo. It really has been a thrilled process, and I would recommend Khairul to anyone looking to get a logo created.
The whole process has been brilliant. I have spent the last evening going back and updating the old files to include the new logo, and it will be front and center on everything released from this point forward!
