Sorry for not updating the story (Morale: The Oflian Conflict) this past week. I had a very bad seizure on Saturday, and yesterday was the first day I felt normal again. Only to be followed up by another seizure today. It arguably wasn’t as bad (it was only about a minute compared to 5 mnutes), but I’m pretty banged up… I almost took my eye out. It looks like I banged the eye socket on the corner of my desk. I somehow cut my shoulder open; it ripped one of my Metroid shirts :( and the area around the cut is really bruised.
This one wasn’t brought on by anything. I’m fucking frustrated…
Neeeeew shirt design! I’m really excited about this one. I’ve started a series of Monster Hunter glyphs based off of different Metroid creatures and bosses, starting off with none other than the infamous leader of the space pirates himself, Ridley! I’m going to be making more of these for sure, (a metroid of course coming soon™, and I have my sights on Kraid since he’s my favorite).
If you guys have any suggestions to what you’d like to see in this style, leave a suggestion in my ask box, or when you reblog it. I’d love to see some feedback on what to do next.
The teased titled by developer Renegade Kid (Moon, Mutant Mudds) is Xeodrifter, which isn’t shy about comparing itself to Metroid.
Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham adores titles like Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, and wanted to make a game of that sub-genre.
Jools Watsham will also be releasing developer diaries up until the game’s release on GoNintendo. Can’t wait to see it completed. I can’t get enough Metroidvanias. Xeodrifter will be available on PC and 3DS. [❤]
This Friday we’ll be kicking off our Hi-Score Club Bootleg Series by revealing a brand new t-shirt designed by jackteagle!
Jack's ALIEN HUNTER design will mark the beginning of a project where we ask our favourite illustrators to hit the drawing board and explore what makes their favourite games and game genres great by designing real merchandise for totally made up (dream) games. Drawing from childhood influences and beyond, this project is all about the enduring love of video games we all share – with just a little nod to the off-brand, totally unofficial paraphernalia that could be found everywhere during the 8 and 16 bit eras. We love that stuff.
As a kind of reverso twist of the early practice of game box artists extrapolating the crude pixellated forms of games into detailed (and often bizarre) promotional art, we’ve made up this little screenshot to clue you into what to expect when we unveil Jack’s design and open pre-orders on Friday. Stay tuned!
