A small story about alternative dimension in abandoned Soviet Union, captured by robots )
Damn! (I am about to go on a long tangent) I absolutely love this piece for a lot of reasons but the thing that stands out to me is that it's a really interesting amalgamtion of a lot of different aesthetics and reference points to really invoke a certain era. The character design invokes Metroid and Mega Man (I hope you can jump on the dog!) but the setting is obviously late USSR, everything adding up to create this sort of throwback to that late 80's aesthetic but without like slavishly recreating the hardware restrictions of late 80's games - I think this is a very interesting take on getting the retro vibe. I would play the shit out of this game.
Also this color palette and sort of gnarled geometry reminds me of something El-Metallico would make so I am VERY on board with that.
