These are very rough 3D block outs of human weapons. All pretty much standard fair. There will be 2 more sets of weapons that represent 2 different alien technologies – those of the bird aliens and those of the insect aliens. These will be fairly interesting and fun to come up with!
The insect aliens are new addition to the game. They were, again, inspired by real-life events just as the bird alien was inspired by a bird’s nest in my front yard. This time the influence came from a flea infestation in my new apartment, thanks to my roommate’s fucking cat.
They are relentless, hardened survivors that come back no matter what I throw at them. Then I came up with the idea to put another alien race in the game that share those very characteristics to pose as formidable enemies. Concept art for these creatures will be forthcoming.
