Developer Concept Art

From Chris Claflin, Lead Artist:

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a great holiday season.

I am focusing on a pair of bots we are currently calling Wyvern and Hydra.  Both attack from a distance; Wyvern uses rapid firing missile pods, and Hydra fires a version of the Cyclone that the player uses.

One of the initial traits for this robot was that it was a sniper, so I imagined it would have arrays of optics that would aid in targeting.  Because our art style is somewhat minimalist, I didn’t want to actually show a complex array of greebles.  Instead, I put a large panel on either side of it’s face protected by a visor.  The visor ends up being a defining visual trait when you encounter these bots in the world.
