Conventions.

Game play.

Even thought I am not making the game I have included some example of what my game would play like if I were to make it.

I like this game play as it looks very simple and easy to get used to.

Poster conventions.

For my FMP I am putting my assets in a game poster I have found these examples.

I like this poster as it shows the amount of detail I will put into my project. If I did something like I could show the details of the asset.

I like this poster as it is very simple and slightly rustic I could make something like this but it would not show to fine details of my asset.

These posters all have one thing in common, all of them have a main character or object from the game, because of this I will have my assets as the first thing you see on the poster with other smaller details in the back ground.

I could do something like this with a ship eclipsing a sun/moon.

Mass effect.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is an action role-playing video game developed by Bio Ware and published by Electronic Arts for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The game was released worldwide in March 2017. I am going to take inspiration from the ship design in this game.

I like this ship because of the angles and the small lights inferring that the ship is very big.

Other inspiration.

here are some images of some ideas that I could use as inspiration:

These ships commonly have sharp edges or cylindrical like apprentices

This is a chart with a lot of space ships from popular franchises such as Star Wars, Independence day and Star Trek.

 

 

This next image is a example of what I could create. I will use this as inspiration for my game.
