thanks jessica... that's interesting, because some of the initial ideas for a logo were just that: using the same characters as the game featured.
I actually pushed Galih to give me non-character designs but that still worked in the same aesthetic... Th'ts where she originally proposed Foldasaur, BlackMask, and MustacheDude...
I think MustacheDude is in the same general "aesthetic neigborhood" as her other characters. I opened up my vector programming tool and was able to combine her brontasaurus character with the MustacheDude.
I guess a lot comes down to the differences and overlaps between "mascot", "logo" and "overall design"....
Does MustacheDude (aka Elbow Macaroni) feel like he's a cousin to the other characters enough to serve as the mascot? I believe so. That's why I'm leaning towards him.
