We are a start up company with a number of new products targeting many different markets. We live and breathe the internet and we live and breathe cloud applications.
The application in this contest gathers information from gaming log files and presents them to our users on a website in a unique fashion. It also acts as an instant messenger between their gaming friends, in replacement of current apps like skype, msn messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ etc.
Gaming Statistics is where this web application is at though.
Xbox360 like achievements
Number of Monster Kills
Number of quests achieved
Who got the kill shots on the boss etc
Something to boast about, something to share with their gaming friends.
We are targeting gamers of massively multiplayer online role playing games. For example, games like Lord of the Rings Online, World of Warcraft, Everquest 1 & 2, Pirates of the Burning Sea, Global Agenda and countless other free to play or pay to play online MMO games.
We may move into First person shooters, strategy games etc in the future but our current target is online gamers that play MMO's.
What we want from this contest is a logo/icon that represents the vision we have of this application. The product is called Sabertooth Tomato. A hard one to visualise I know, but thats why we are recruiting you guys to help us with this.
We have no preconceived ideas of how this should look, whether graphic or text driven style icons so we will leave it up to you guys to determine.
We will provide feedback for the group of designers to let them know as the contest progresses what we like, what we don't like and what direction we should be heading in.
This contest will be held blind to protect the designers concepts. I hope you can help.
