Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

Hello there, as some of you may know, I'm currently studying Games Development in college. However, in less than a month, I would have finished college and will be moving into University to study to become an English teacher (odd progression, I know). During uni and whilst teaching, perhaps even for as long as I'm physically able to, I plan to create indie video games in my spare time with the intent of publishing them wherever I see fit (eg: Steam, App Store, etc.).

As part of my final assessment in college, I'm creating a game that I intend to continue to work on even after it has been submitted (my college allows us to retain the rights to any games we create whilst on the course). I intend to publish this game on Steam as my first official game. In preparation for this, I'm looking to start up social media platforms to promote my game; that brings me to the topic of this thread:

Previously

Thanks to everyone's help, I've settled on a brand name. However, I'm now looking to create a temporary logo for myself. My art skills aren't very good, so it's unlikely I'm going to create anything with a wow factor, but I still want to create something that's passable for now. Later on, most likely once I get a bit of profit from publishing my first game, I intend to pay someone to redesign the logo to make it look nice and professional. For now though, I'd appreciate feedback on the images that I post in the thread. This feedback could be colour suggestions, critiques of the design, or any general advice/guidance you can give me on creating my own logo. Thanks for all the help.

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

That's odd progression indeed

If Devle is your nickname, I don't think naming a game studio in your own honour by simply showing your name into the studio name is a good idea
Consider changing it a bit so that studio's name maybe contains a reference to your name, that would be interesting
Here's what came to my mind:
DevLevels
DelveGames (this isn't misspelled)
Elved Studio (Devle backwards, also after I wrote this I realized "Elved" sounds like a verb word for "Elf")

It's essentially going to just be me. However, my specialism is game design and programming. I'm also fairly decent at creating sounds, music and voice acting but if I want something more than just basic sound then I'd need to pay someone for that. Whilst I could make all the art myself, I'm planning on outsourcing all of my art and paying others to create it for me as this is literally the best of my art skills:
eHJMS1U.png

As you can see, I used wheels to avoid adding a walk cycle and I also gave up trying to add animation to the arms so I changed the robots to basically have a psychic stump.

So whilst it is primarily just me, at least 1 other person will be involved with every game. Ideally, I'd like to have the same artist each time. But the point is that I don't really want the brand to be exclusively me since others will also be involved but I would like it to reference me in some way.

I realize this probably sounds generic too, but what about IndieDev Productions?

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

Sadly, my first thought of inDev is taken. I have a feeling TaskManager's DevLevels will work best. You could even do the logo like this:

DevLevels

It could use other colors of course; I just used HTML color names because I was too lazy to get color codes.

If you're fine with Devil too, you could do Devilish Game Development. It seems that a software maker already has that one though.
I was thinking Devle's (Devilish) Development Studio, but Studio 2D and 3D are taken. Studio 4D is too actually... Good news is that Studio 3D seems to be more about dance; I couldn't find any company in the development industry under Studio 3D. You could still snag that name for game development (look at Dove chocolate and Dove shampoo). If you don't want 'Studio' for indie development, you have even more possibilities.

A few more ideas I have:

Bedevled Games / BeDevled Games
VauDevle Games / Vaudevillian Games (If your name were Ian, you could be VauDevleIan Games)

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

I have a lot of suggestions, I actually have a whole trello board full of these kinds of things here's a couple of them - it's quite a mix

  • Unelected

  • Wisp

  • Moonquake

  • Like with pie

  • Ordinary days

  • This Works

  • Twice a year

  • No ambition

  • Death cult

  • Continuous Thunder

  • Subject of interest

  • Hate his friends

  • Product of habit

  • By chance

  • Urge to purge

  • Barely awake

  • Ok fine

  • Whatever

  • Proud of you

  • Flight of the dreamer

And if you want something random (and pronouncable) pick any of the 200k words in https://live.koya.io/0x3642.json (you're basically guarenteed to get any domain you want with these)
Interesting ones:

  • Noftentaghtulle

  • Thuckat

  • Ullunkusk

  • Snazaphole

  • Smucka

  • Zeelo

  • Urestorha Get it?

  • Peumgufe

  • Zoshu

  • Spanilucka

  • Gowollese

  • Snuckante

  • Smispibposing

Also from that list these are the words beginning with "Dev"

  • Devin

  • Devake

  • Deviffond

  • Devangepusk

And if you don't mind borrowing song titles, may I recommend

  • Mephisto's Café

I made a logo concept. (Ignore the skewed-ness, I'm not very good at art. I just wanted to explore the concept).

That is a pretty, original art with original brand title. I like it! even with that art condition. If it gets improved, would get better.

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

1. Is college and uni the same thing, or are you referring to two different things?
2. I am sorry for how many times I must had misspelled your username. It is the first time I notice it's Devle.

I like Elved Studio btw.

Good luck!

In England, high school lasts until you're 16. You then go to college for 2 years (this is compulsory but you choose what course or courses you study - though there are alternatives to college). Then after that you can choose to go to university if you want to. College is completely free as long as you are 18 or younger when you start the academic year but if you want to stay in college for longer then you have to pay. University is quite costly, £9000 a year for most courses. But the loans they give you to handle that are actually really good because they're not really considered to be a debt by any companies and you only have to pay it back if you're earning over a certain amount of money each year (it equates to just a higher tax for going to Uni in my opinion).

Nice idea but it is way too big and asymetrical and the split colours don't work
Keep it simple and concise

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

So at this point, I've pretty much settled on my brand name being Devlevels. So now, I'm looking more into finalising my logo. I plan to pay someone to make a professional version later down the line, but for now I want to create something that is passable myself.

This is what I've created so far:
WhshkXT.png

Obviously, there are a great many flaws with it at the moment and it's far from finished. But before I continue working on it, I want to get some feedback to help direct where I go from here with it.

Re: Indie Brand [Serious replies only please]

Hold up; is “devle” meant to be pronounced “devil”??

Because if so, there might be a significant fraction who never realise, and just think it’s weird.
