I’m starting to notice a trend here.
What is it with white cracked faces and black open mouths and black eyes with white glowing pupils that scares us so much? The pareidolia? The uncertainty? The biological conditioning for recognizing and wanting to stay away from signs of dying people and dead? Skulls? The natural fear of eyes of some creature glowing in the dark? There’s something so terrifying and unnerving about it. There’s so many examples of games using this design in scary characters and moments, almost as much as generic pale spastic Japanese girl with long black hair and a tendency to look at the floor.
Mad Max Wreck-it-Ralph AU where Max is Ralph and he just wants to be left alone but wanders into a Wasteland racing Game in his quest for solitude and meets Vanellope!Furiosa who is an outcast in her own game which is run by King Joe.
(Dude Furiosa as Calhoun and Max as Fix-it-Felix also tickles my fancy)
