Many of you have seen some preview art of a few members of the Red Dragons, or heard us talking about them. Well, we can finally officially announce them now that the art for all 6 starting characters are complete, thanks to our amazing artist Viktor Kolodiazhniy (and Tania Gomes for putting the “group photo” together).
Many of you have heard us talking about this in passing, some have seen them in the wild, so to speak, and enthusiastic visitors of our website have seen them posted in the past week. But today, we would like to announce the 3rd team that we have designed, the Animals! Big thanks to Amit Thulasidasan for the character art and Viktor Kolodiazhniy for the faction logo.
How should I say this? Well, we were caught, and we are guilty…
Let me rewind to the beginning. One of the goals of designing Omicron Protocol, for Brendan and I, is to make sure the game is as representative as possible of the diverse group of people we have living in a modern (even futuristic!) multicultural big city. We have spent a lot of time thinking, planning, and doing a lot of research into cultures, genders, races, orientations, etc… that we originally knew nothing about, just to make sure that the characters we add to the game are not caricatures or stereotypes of a certain group of people.
