Another enemy animation test for Metal Savior.

The Eve faction excels at genetic engineering, and utilizes biological components in their mechs. The Aberrant is a disposable frontline trooper built from unstable components. Outfitted with dangerous acidic chemicals, it erupts into a cloud of corrosive gas when killed.

I got a little lazy with the gas and debris effects... in game, these are handled by the physics engine.

I know you want the Eve faction to be more "organic" so I understand the design choice, but at this size it sort of looks like part of the gun (like an ammo clip or something).  Maybe if you simplified it by making it thinner and/or getting rid of the "hand" it would improve the design.  I'm also assuming this unit never has to grab anything?  Cuz if it never needs to grab anything then why have a hand?

If the gun wasn't there, I think the hand/arm would look fine.  It would be like a cute little servant robot that is fueled by the green stuff.  Anyway I'm just nit-picking.

Your game looks fun and I bookmarked the website.

Yes, it only has one arm.

I was worried about the readability there, I may have to show a bit of shoulder on the far side or something..

This is great.  I like the sloshing liquid.

I'm a little confused by the underside.  The green tube is kind of dull, and is that supposed to be an arm with the gun attached to it?
