Vote for Neptune's new game icon

Hi all,

We, the devs that made 7 Cities and the iJiggles dude, have been hard at work on our next game. This is actually the first time we are publicly posting information about the game. The new game is a side-scrolling beat 'em up similar to Streets of Rage. Anyway, we will be posting more information and videos over the next few days.

But right now, we need your help to choose an icon for the game. You can do so by voting in this thread poll.

Option 1: Icon with blue background


Option 2: Icon with orange background


Option 3: Don't like 1 or 2

Added more options after initial feedback. I can't edit the poll though, so just comment on these.







Also a teaser poster of our game.


Added a screenshot from our Story mode.

I think the teaser poster would look better.

Having just the face always turns out better than the whole body. Maybe a border as well?

EDIT: Screenshot looks awesome!

Something like this? (Too low res)

I prefer orange, maybe it's just a coincidence but loads of my app icons have a blue background... I need some other colours to jazz up my iPod a bit.

I think it would help if you could post them at 54x54 (is that the iPhone icon size? I forget) so we can see how the detail will look on our devices and make a better decision

i kind of like the last of the "face only" icons, but even that one doesn't absolutely grab me

...how about taking the two guys on the first teaser poster, removing the hands and putting their faces closer together so they can fit on a square...

Too close and it'll look like they're about to kiss.
