Hi! The name’s Peridot and I’m part of the Art team here, nice to meet you all. Today is my first time writing here, more like first time ever writing something like this, so I’m going to try my best. Today’s topic’s about the new district: Mustang (Duh!), especially the art part (or that’s as far as I can go).

I’m not sorry for that title. Hi! The name’s Peridot and I’m part of the Art team here, nice to meet you all. Today is my first time writing here, more like first time ever writing something like this, so I’m going to try my best. Today’s topic’s about the new district: Mustang (Duh!), especially the art part (or that’s as far as I can go).

First of all, happy D-1 valentine’s day! I’ve never celebrated it, but I do understand that there’re several ways to celebrate this day all over the world (Fun fact: I just read the Wikipedia, LOL). Based on that, thank you for following us up until now and on behalf of the team I’d say, we really love you and here’s a poem for you:

“The rose is red, the violet’s blue,

The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,

And Fortune said it shou’d be you.”

-Gammer Gurton’s Garland (1784)
(Yes, I’m a lazy person)

Back onto business, before I start explaining, I want to refresh your memory regarding Ascender. This is the concept world of Ascender, written by the art director Amber. Also, Ruby, our scriptwriter told you about the districts exist in Goa, here.

Now that your Ascender’s memories have returned and you have basic info of Mustang, let’s talk for real. As written by Ruby, Mustang’s the source of food for the citizens of Goa. If you’ve played our alpha game (which can be found here), you’re playing the district’s below Mustang called Dolopo. You could see that Dolopo has a lot of brown colors with all those metal-thingamabobs whereas Mustang has a lot of greens, due to, yes, you guessed it right: its farm fields among other things.

Can you spot the differences?

There aren’t a lot of buildings here (compared to Dolopo of course), because the farms are the main feature in Mustang. Its farm fields based on an agriculture technique called ‘terracing’. I helped with the drawing on the farm fields behind the focus ground using traditional watercolors with a little digital polishing (We do have technology). Oh yeah, to be able to make the crops grow properly until harvest time, they used an artificial sunlight. Well, I don’t know what to explain anymore about the Mustang situation, so here are more sneak peek of Mustang.

Now, let’s talk about the animals that live in Mustang. Now as stated before, Mustang’s the place for food for the citizens of Goa which mean a lot of animals live here, heck you can find most animal species in Goa here! For example Tonaba, it’s a (not)precious microscopic creature that helps fertilizing soils here. Also there’re Garsels which help with transportation individually. Mass transportation handled by Millithropode et cetera et cetera… I don’t want to give out too much spoiler, let the others do it for me LOL. Anyway, below are sneak peek concept of the creatures I mentioned before:

That’s it for today! Stay updated, and if you haven’t tried our game, do try it and tell us what you think! Any feedbacks are really appreciated. We are trying our best! Thanks~

Last, but not least, again thank you very much, see you again and have a wonderful day!

Signing off,

Hey there,

Really liking your game!
As for the graphic part, maybe in the first picture you shouldn't use that kind of shading on the light, it looks a bit off, but it's probably because it's blue, maybe if it was yellow it wouldn't look that weird. Anyway, the rest of the things are looking really cool! Best of lucks :)
