Wayforward contacted me for urgent help with the in game interface design for the Nintendo DS game Contra 4. The style they were looking for was a combination of futuristic/alien inspired graphic design. The work was focused on the main lobby interface but I also created the tracker interface that appears on one of the dual DS screens. The images show some of the interface concepts and screenshots from the final game.

Ugh, I've been trying to work on a steampunk web design for a while now, and it's just awful. This however, is amazing. How the hell do you do this?! It's soooo good. Keep up the amazing work!

I drooled a bit. It's busy but that doesn't seem to distract from the interface at all. Top notch!

Nice work... But that logo at the top is copyright Flashlevel.com so unless you own Flashlevel, you shouldn't do that :)

The interface was actually intial made for "flashlevel", but since the owner got jailed (for selling warez online,) they was not able to hire me anylonger and buy the final artwork. So then Wayforward bought the rights for it.
Im not sure what happend to flashlevel, and if the owner is till jailed..
