Here's the GUI I did for Sickness. Some things have been changed around in the final version, such as the menu fonts, but I was too lazy to update it one the sample image. Not only did I do the GUI and logo for this game, but also five different menu images. The one shown in the screenshots provided is of the main character Koro.

Although I designed this some months ago I wanted to put it up here because the game recently got put on Steam Greenlight. Please check it out if you have the time!

Thanks! It's basically a game about a guys descent into a life of crime and how he tries to manage it. I'm not that great at descriptions but I've copy/pasted a summary of the game below for you.

"Sickness is a Visual Novel following the life of Koro, a high school student turned violent criminal.

Following the deaths of his parents, Koro is left without a home or source of income. All he has is his twin sister, Sara, who he promises to provide for, even if doing so means throwing his life away.

Using the entirety of their savings, the two move to another city, wherein Koro quickly finds work. Sara commutes to her old school, Koro works long, physically-demanding hours, and the two survive off instant food, barely scraping by. It isn't a happy life, but they make it work.

Or at least they did, until a violent outburst set into motion a rapid descent.

Amid a physical altercation with his boss, Koro blacks out, waking up to find a corpse laying at his feet. His knuckles bloody, his muscles aching, he realizes that he has just murdered his boss, the person responsible for his continued well-being. But rather than lament the loss of life, all Koro can think of is how badly he needed the money, and what he'll do next to get it.

Drawn by the scent of blood, one of Koro's coworkers, a young man with criminal connections, offers him a not so legal revenue stream, one encouraging violent behavior and rewarding the capable.

And from there, everything spirals out of control.

As it turns out, Koro has a knack for crime, and the petty reservations he had about such acts don't last long. For the well-being of his sister, as well as his own self-interest, he becomes a killer for hire, taking out people anybody his new boss tells him to. He quickly adapts to life as a killer, adopting a double life his sister can never know about.

But his new life is not without trouble. Facing death on a weekly basis is only the beginning; between avoiding police detection, eyewitnesses, and even the malice of his fellow professional killers, Koro's new life looks to be the death of him.

Will Koro manage to survive long enough to keep his promise to his sister? Will he turn tail and escape from this life of crime, finding solace in the company of someone or something else? Or will he be hunted down and killed before he ever gets the chance? "
