This picture was inspired by a game called Catacomb Kids
which is currently being made by Tyriq Plummer, who goes by Xion on the TIGSource
forums. He's helped me on several occasions with animation and character design, so I wanted to return the favour somehow. I was also just really inspired by the world he created for the game, and for some reason it just resonated with me, so I needed to get it out somehow.
The game itself is fuckin' great too. It's a platforming roguelike with all the traditional RPG trappings, but done in a brutally hard, permadeath fashion that you'll really enjoy if you like games like Spelunky, TowerClimb, Dungeons of Dreadmor, or other roguelikes. It's unreleased right now but he blogs about it's development on his tumblr site
, so drop by and tell him I sent you.
