With over 90% of the enemies being giant killer mechs, I decided to add a bit of variety with this one. This is more of a personal enemy to Destrato, as you don’t wipe out entire civilisations without pissing a few of the survivors off along the way.
When designing it, I wanted to see what science could acheive if it was unrestrained from ethics and fuelled by hatred. Experimenting and modifying the human body wouldn’t be off limits, collateral damage would be of no concern and objections on moral and safety grounds for the subject would be easily overlooked.
There’s plenty more back story to this one; how it works, where it came from, how it arrives etc. but I don’t want to spoil all of the surprises. It’s safe to say though that if Destrato has learnt to fear this thing you better follow his lead on that.
This piece of amazing art comes from the talented SaejinOh. Check out his other works on his blog here.
Yup, it’s got it’s own day. It took me a while to not be ashamed of being a geek, so I’m proud there’s a day to celebrate and unite all of the various and numerous geeks out there.
Nothing wrong with being a geek guys and gals. Show’s you’re a little different and passionate about what you like and do. Take my comic for example; I’m not trying to do it to be different on purpose or make a statement (I’m looking at you Hipsters). I just love doing it and it makes up a part of who I am in a special way. I’m also an Excel & Data geek, which lands me good jobs and allows me to fund the things I love.
Also, if you break down a geek you’ll see that they simply have intelligence and obsession. Not really bad characteristics, right? Beats stupid and indifferent…
