From the Inside Flap

Mobile Gaming on cellphones and portable games stations is a huge business, and many characters have become design icons. However, the physical limitations of small screens, and the technological challenges of different gaming platforms, mean that designers have had to become experts at creating characters with just a few points of light. Character Design for Mobile Devices looks at the techniques, the inspiration, the technologies, and the creative challenges behind designing (and redesigning) characters with pixels, and at the amazing art and artists inspired by game design and early 2-D gaming systems.
