Chief Puzzle Officer is a puzzle game developed by DuoFun Studios. CDS was approached by the developers to design a variety of characters for the game.
We started off with nameless characters that are based on various professions such as 'nurse' or 'inventor'. These below are some of the artworks that were done for the game in the earlier stage. A number of these are collaborations between two artists with one artist providing the design and the other doing the FA.
Later on, we started working on a higher tier of characters whom we label as Key Appointment Holders. These unnamed characters are meant to be stronger and more powerful than your regular unnamed characters. That is reflected in the more elaborate costume design for these characters.
From here onwards, we focused on the named characters within the story, starting with the protagonist's secretary, Jenny and moving on to the various antagonists within the storyline.
Jenny the secretary was designed when we still thought the game was named 'Billionaire Maker'. There are part of her design that reflected that. No updates was made since it's a nice call back to when the game was still under development. Jenny was fully designed by Zi Rong.
Out of the many antagonists within the storyline, Chantal stands almost opposite to Jenny. While they both start of as secretary-like figures, Chantal will go on to don a more elaborate costume to head the antagonistic organization. She will also headline CPO. Chantal is designed by Zi Rong with Antonio doing the finishing.
There were other characters, villains, friends and mooks within the game and these characters were designed between Low Zi Rong and Mysterious Artist A over the period of a couple of months.
We've also came up with festive versions of existing characters. These are variants of the characters in festive-specific costumes!
