Here’s a closer look at the icon palette that will be used within the Boundless GUI. There’s still plenty more to fill out and readability to work on, but this should give you an idea of the style and how it’ll feel. (I’ll try to keep this thread up to date over the week as I work on different bits)
Here’s a look at how we might render these in the GUI. Simple solid shapes with some chiselled depth:
Some navigation GUI:
Here’s a version with some stoney texture (which I don’t really think adds much or works that well, but sharing for process reasons:
These are awesome; they really seem to fit the style of boundless! Some are pretty abstract, but I suspect they’ll be more meaningful in context
It’s especially fun to make wild guesses w/o context, though:
Can these icons be put on signs as a universal way of translating where everything is in a house?
i like the icons, they looks fine and they are simple.
icons look like…
we get a questlog or a to do list ?
profession - alchemie ?
look like we get some ingame statistic (i hope it XD)
chat and sound ^^
a bomb ? ^^
Awesome! One of my favorite things to hear about when it comes to devlog art is GUI, so it’s good to see another post for that. I’ll add this image to the devlog collection.
I like your guesses (helps me understand how people read them, keep them coming!)
Time to put the kettle on!
Oh… I can’t unsee that now. Thanks for that.
Do I win a prize for finding 2 of these?
No, the other one is upside down.
(I just did a sneaky update – much higher-res image this time too)
I noticed this now too … … does this mean there will be some form of in-game mail system?
Weather stuff has all been grouped together now as well I see!
Still has 2 of these though!
We have a design for this, it’s quite important. We’ll share more in the future.
I’ve done it again…
Caution - exposure to the following text may ruin Boundless for you…

I see that you keep getting killed by a level 1 cuttletrunk. Would you like me to ask your guilds for help?"
Joking a side, though I’m not sure if I’m allowed to leak this information, but this symbol:
is actually my guilds symbol, Super cereal guild of sirius oortians.
I think you really captured the essence of the guild in this symbol really well @ben, thank you.
P.S. I’m really just kidding here(or am I?)
(Updated with some more fancy rendering)
