Puzzle Pirates is an amazing example of a close-knit relationship between developers and players.
The developers often mingle with players, both in the game and on the forums. In turn, players can also contribute to the in-game art or design by participating in contests organized on the forums.
The winners of these contests get their work published in the game along with a bag of goodies.
I have created portrait backgrounds that function as a backdrop for the in-game profile pictures, as well as seasonal trinkets that players can collect and display.
This project contains the pieces I created that made it into the final game.
