View Full Version : 4 maps for an iPad game

Hello Cartographers, this is my first post, and perhaps something unusual for this forum. These maps are the background images for an iPad game I've recently released called DroneSwarm Command. It's a strategy game where you control drones. The maps are deliberately desaturated and subtle so as not to be too distracting, after all they are a static background over which the game is played. They're made in Photoshop, using Google Earth for reference of real-world locations.

The locations for these maps are...

A fictional space elevator at Kismayo in Somalia.
A nuclear power station at Sellafield in the United Kingdom.
A radio telescope at Parkes Peak in Australia.
Plesetsk cosmodrome, a spaceport in Russia.

Here's the trailer for the game: DroneSwarm Command for iPad - Trailer - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SryODkVKN5I)
