104 Building Design by wewy 104 Building Design by wewy
Slide 3
104 Building Design


Did you conduct any research before creating the backgrounds?
The entire team went on-location in Shibuya to get a feel of the town, and to provide the designers with reference material. We shot hundreds of photos of buildings, intersections and graffiti around the city.


What iconic elements of the setting did you focus on?
Depending on the map, we treated streets themselves and building signage as the focus of many scenes

Could you explain the reasons behind the locations that were chosen?
We were originally planning to use all of Greater Tokyo to create a variety of battles and scenery. We eventually settled on Shibuya where we can best explore the iconic elements of contemporary Tokyo, such as fashion and subculture. We believed we could express those concepts with better focus by limiting the setting to Shibuya.

Wow game design especially in such an abstract game as Twewy looks incredibly challenging. I am really glad that I got to witness some of the "behind the scenes" stuff for Square which always has incredible graphics and design that have unique feels all the time. I have to wonder though, if the story was created before the game design and what art styles were looked at before this urban street/graffiti style?

Isn't it building 109 that's the main fashion outlet? Is it deliberately 104 to avoid any lawsuits for copywright reasons?

I'd love to do this. The early deadline and giving away my ideas, however, kills it for me. Still looks cool though.
