Boss Mode Character Design Update

Papaya - The cat

In Juice Jam, the Boss mode used to be a very large mean cat in a read suit. Because of player feedback, we decided to change the “boss” to a friendlier and less villian-like character. We wanted a cute and friendly little cat instead. I had the opportunity to design her! Her name is Papaya the Cat, and going along with the fruit theme, she was based on a pear originally, but we ended up going with a papaya (the shape is similar).

In Game Events featuring Papaya!

Here is various card art that I worked on for the game. Original character designs by Mary Shu (Art Director). I followed the character sheets and stayed consistent to the game style.
