Mirror’s Edge is one of my favorite games of the last generation. Its art style is simple and elegant. The flat colors of the buildings and semi-open metropolis are beautiful backdrops for this free running adventure game. Faith is at the center of this world. She is a “Runner”, a courier who carries physical communiqués around the city for revolutionary groups who want to avoid detection by technological means. Unlike most protagonists, Faith has a fairly simple appearance. However, that does not take away from her style. She primarily wears a black tank top, white cargo pants with black cuffs at the bottom, red laceless sneakers, and red fingerless gloves. Her design displays sophistication through simplicity.
