Post news RSS Starting the development of an indie videogame: The concept art with an AAA team

When we had the idea of our new indie game, we thought that the concept should be great! So we contacted many talented artist of AAA game industry. So... Have a look at the amazing concept arts that Shaddy Safadi (The Last Of Us, Uncharted 2) created for Reverse: Time Collapse

Posted by on

To develop a game like Reverse: Time Collapse, we really needed out-of-this-world artists to help us visualize our ideas. We wrote a reference document for them with some written ideas and images. The style follows the ’30s fashion style but updated in details, textures and fabrics, something like a mix between futuristic movies and old style!

Shaddy Safadi, concept artist best known for his works on The Last Of Us and Uncharted 2, provided us stunning artworks representing the three main characters: Jack, Jane and Patrick.

In the meanwhile we write this article, we are TOP #40 on Steam Greenlight:

Jack Black

For Jack, Shaddy created three different style options.

We chose the first one as it fits better our starting idea and we just changed small details.

Patrick Caine

For Patrick, the first concept was this one.


We imagined it a bit different, so we started changing his face…


… and clothes. The result was this one.

Caine-Ideations 2.fw

Yes, it’s him! Among the two options, we liked the second one more. Have a look at the final result.


Jane Austen

Jane is the character we all wanted to fall in love with, a very difficult task to accomplish. The attempts were three. Have a look to the first and second.

As the character is very important in the game, we asked for a third attempt and we GOT IT!


At first, Jane wore a skirt but we thought it was not really comfortable for performing moves in an action adventure, so we shifted to trousers.
