I won’t write a novel on this blog today, I swear.
We just wanted to show you this new modeled version of the Sharp Crystal.
Mineral PatchUntil now, the Crystal you could have seen in game was kind of a “test” model, allowing you to play the game while waiting for this new one.
The Sharp Crystal is a common ore. It’s the basic element for construction.

It’s really simple. For now, in WinThatWar! you just have to take care of the level of two resources. The first one is the Energy, created through generators, and the second one is the Sharp Crystal you have to extract through… well, through an extractor.

We chose as reference a particular ore : Ilmenite. A titanium and iron oxyde mineral.

The hexagonal shapes are used to represent strengh and solidity. We hope it works!
We tried to make it very raw/unrefined, as it’s mean to be the most basic resource of the game. But at the same time we wanted it a bit sharp.

When it came to color it, we thought it needed to be Surreal, so the purple was perfect.
We really want the player (a.k.a you) to desire to find and extract this kind of cake made of Crystal.

It’s not really a retro-future style element, as you may have noticed, but I think it contrasts nicely with the retro-futurism style of the buildings, as the extractor, for example:

Extractor plus Mineral Patch

Hope you could find some on a distant planet. I think you could find it useful.
