Game Audience Research - Influence Map

Before I move on to fully develop TEZCATLIPOCA, I revised the research I carried out into the different gaming audiences, and the ratings that came with them. I decided to settle with ESRB Everyone 10+

Titles rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) have content that may be suitable for ages 10 and older. Titles in this category may contain more cartoon, fantasy or mild violence, mild language and/or minimal suggestive themes

I feel this gave me the most scope to work with, as well as keeping the tonality at a certain level. I put together an influence map of games that fall into this category so I can create a feel of what would be expected from this grouping

As you can see, there are some cartoonish elements, but all some serious undertones in a few. There doesn't seem to be any complexities in the character's themselves, and feels overall very light hearted. These are elements which will obviously effect my characters look and feel.
