I was just wondering how people feel about having pictures or other visual media inside a game, since it seems fairly common for some kind of illustrations to be present in games. I was also considering drawing some illustrations for the game I’m working on and it’d be interesting to see how people feel about them. So I thought I’d put it up for discussion!
A couple basic starting questions are, do you like just having the text descriptions to go off when you imagine the appearance of things, or do you prefer having some insight into what the writer’s vision that can be provided by an illustration? Are in-game maps helpful or hampering? Do illustrations work as well on mobile devices as they do on larger-screened tablets, laptops or desktops?
