TINTIN


NINTENDO

Nintendo has a real childlike innocence in the way that they design their characters. For instance, the Nintendo Mii allows for total user editing and allows the ability to create your own personal Avatar that you can use in many games. Nintendo also has very trademark character design. They are built on the basis that they can allow for any age group to play.

TINTIN

although not a video game avatar TINTIN went on numerous adventures and changed costumes based on the current adventure he was involved in. I like the style of TINTIN because it is reminiscent of old style comics and has a real “American� illustrative style. Also as a child I used to read the comics as well as watch the TINTIN cartoon. It might be a good idea to have the theme and style of the Avatar change based on the period or era that is currently available. As things become more and more current the style can change. Maybe it could be based on location, if you were underwater you could be in scuba gear if you were in space you could be in a space suit.

KINGDOM HEARTS

Kingdom Hearts has an interesting take on character evolution based on the current environmental settings. As you go through the game you change your appearance based on the world that you currently inhabit. I believe there is something to be taken from this idea.

PORTAL

in portal you can use the portal device to alter reality and find ways to view yourself through a dimensional rift. I was thinking that it might be interesting to use a portal feature to open up access to the avatar. This way it could always be there but would not have to take up screen space.


FALLOUT 3

Fallout 3 has a very realistic style of character development if this is the style that you are most interested in then this is the game for you. It is what the world would be like if the Nuclear Holocaust happened. Regardless they have very nice character styling.
