My though process on this one: I spent weeks thinking about a good metaphor. First thoughts were of a cave-like temple (as in the game), but that is hard to pull off. Next was some kind of mask or skull, that plays on the evil primates that are in pursuit. But that too is hard to pull off. Then cobble stones, which would be a good metaphor for the running aspect, but does very little for app recognition.
Then it hit me. Why not make a temple? I could play on the angle of the icon as is defined by the bevel. So I did. I'm elated with the result. First time fabricating ancient brick and a pyramid-like Mayan temple, so it was a fun run ;)
And now no longer will I have to keep this app in a folder.
