Working on Mafia Wars I created a lot of items. Over 2000 during my time with the game. How items worked in the game was players were given an attack and defence score calculated by their top 50 items in each category. I was tasked with designing items for Animals, Armour, Henchmen, Weapons and Vehicles.
I would create an art brief then send it to the game artists who would do a draft and send it back. Working alongside the internal art team we would review each item to check if it was as designed, anything that could be a legal issue and quality of the artwork.
Once it passed all three of the criteria it was used as needed, given stats and put into the game.
Below are some of my favourites in each category.
