One intrepid mercenary soldier faces off against a horrifying virus infecting the ship and killing its inhabitants, turning them into plant-zombies. Would be a typical metroidvania.

I really liked the palette on this one and was tempted to do more screens, but decided to err on the side of caution for the challenge's requirements.

Oh, very nice - I like it and want to play this :)

Hey thanks, everyone. Really appreciate it. 

@Mandrill: For sure, it could use a little more detail; it's still kinda bland in some areas. Thanks for the crit!
@Damian: Hah, yeah you got me. I'll fix it up a bit. Thanks!
@Volrak: I have a loooooot of time on my hands right now and nothing I'd rather do, so this is the result, haha.

Really cool smoke

Damian (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/9/2015 14:00

I'd work on the word preview though, it looks lazily done

Damian (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 5/9/2015 13:59

Pretty damn cool :)

J-Em (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 5/9/2015 13:22

That smoke!

Cool style.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/9/2015 13:16

Looks great, I like it a lot.

One nitpick though. I think the walls could use some subtle details.

Great piece nonetheless.
