Introducing the Carrot Farm

Do you like carrot cake!?  Your next destination on your journey through Cakedom is the Carrot Farm.  Chop the top of growing carrots to create stumps for your towers and defend your carrot cake from new creatures.  We’ll also be introducing 2 new towers to add to your collection of defenses!

Much of the game’s environment art was inspired by the foodscape works of Carl Warner, particularly this piece with tall carrot trees.  We imagined if you lived in a food themed world that it would be covered with oversized vegetables.

We started with sketches of the Carrot Farm on the world map and concept art, then moved on to creating the in-game environment dirt tiles, rocks, carrots, and leaves.

Naomi “Nomz” Yee: Doing the initial creative design work on new environments and cakes are the most difficult parts for me.  I spent a lot of time searching for reference art online of carrot cakes and carrots to study the colors, textures, layering, and frosting decoration.  After some time, I’m STARVING and had a rabid craving for carrot cake @___@.  I had no choice but to make a trip to the grocery store at midnight.  Of course they didn’t have it so the quest continued to the next day.  It was only after I ate the entire cake that I was able to get back to working on the game.  The cake was obviously needed to fuel my creativity…
