The Dead Astronaut’s Background

Hello there space travelers!

While my VGA is melted down (fact that dont let me work in Unreal Engine 4, so i cant work with TDAH),  i took this time to polish the background story of the main character, the historical context and the mythological context, specially this last one.

The time line of the mythological context is so large that goes right to the beginning of the universe and beyond, to the previous universes.

I dont want to spoil anything, i just list some mayor events:

  • The Blind Archeologist destroys the previous universe and create this one using The Octogon
  • The rise and fall of The Ancients
  • the creation of The Three Elder Gods
  • the creation of The Eights
  • Creation of Thoi Sean, his star Aldebaraan and his duty to the mankind.
  • The trial of Dimitri and The Dead Astronaut’s House.

 

Sounds good right? at least to me 😀

One good thing of getting this background cooked is the fact that i was able to abord the elements of the game and the art way more accurate to the story. Some reflect of this is the progress of the main poster’s art

This is a (almost) final version of The Dead Astronaut’s house:

As you can see it still have a vintage movie style. This one in particular inspired in 2001: A Space Odyssey 

The drawing of the astronauts is something to polish, but the poster itself will be like this. You can see the aesthetic of the 60’s, you can see Aldebaraan, a star with mayor relevance in the story, you can also see Dimitri and the Octagon.

And now some other old posters that i didn’t show you:

Some of this may, or may not be used ingame.

Well, that’s all for today. Hope to get a new vga soon and finish the game 😀
