Your thumbnail is very important, it's how people find and recognise your content. Here are some tips.
  • You can add a logo or name to the center
  • Make sure text doesn't run off the edges
  • Don't put the s&box logo on it (we already know what we're playing)
  • Don't include other text (hyping up, fake player numbers etc)
  • Don't add borders or gradients, they'll look awful
  • Make sure it's not all pixelly and bad looking
  • No transparency
If you're struggling with a thumbnail - reach out on the discord, I'm sure someone will help. We have a photoshop template thing here you can try to use too.
This is how your game will be shown to users on the main menu. This will be resized to 512x512.
We'll use this as a background image on the game information screen and loading screen. Ideally around 1280x720.
