Delve into ‘The Art of Villainous’ with Ravensburger at Play Creators Conference

Ravensburger, Play Creators Conference 2020
At this year’s Play Creators Conference, a special panel session will delve into the art direction behind Ravensburger’s smash-hit board game series, Villainous.

The award-winning Villainous series sees players take on the role of a Disney Villain striving to achieve their own devious objective. The Disney version of the game has spawned several expansion packs, while a new Marvel Villainous launched earlier this year.

The session, chaired by Mojo Nation’s Billy Langsworthy, will see Shane Hartley, Art Director at Ravensburger North America and Jake Breish, Graphic Designer at Ravensburger North America, discuss what goes into creating art for the Disney series of games.

As well as exploring the work that went into the first Villainous game, the session will also unpick the firm’s decision to use different artists and styles for each of the different Disney villains present throughout the wider Villainous series.

The session will go out in a special daily Mojo Nation newsletter during the first week of September (Tuesday September 1st – Friday September 4th) as part of Mojo Nation’s Virtual Play Creators Conference, with all content released during the week totally free to watch.

The panel will be pre-recorded later this month, but we are putting your questions to the panellists, so if you have a question you’d like them to answer, please email it to [email protected].
