Sombra Android Theme for KLWP

 

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. You can learn more about the game here.

Stealth and debilitating attacks make Sombra a powerful infiltrator. Her hacking can disrupt her enemies, ensuring they're easier to take out, while her EMP provides the upper hand against multiple foes at once. Sombra’s ability to Translocate and camouflage herself makes her a hard target to pin down.

I decided to make this android theme after coming across a post on reddit with the apple watchface as the Sombra logo.

You can either follow the text tutorial, or the video tutorial, whichever is convenient.

Remarks

 

This theme is not perfect. (Hence not on play store). I do this in my spare time. There might be a few issues depending on device. Most probably not. But I'll be happy to help.

 

This theme was made using a Nexus 6P, which has been my daily driver since 2015. So it should be compatible with all 16:9 devices. That said, it should also work with modern phones with taller 18:9 or 19:9 displays. 

That should do it. If you have any troubleshooting questions feel free to contact me via the website, or Twitter and YouTube comments.
