Broken Weave Dev Diary 3: Creature Feature
Welcome back to our ongoing series of developer diaries for Broken Weave, the post-apocalyptic tragic fantasy setting for 5th edition. Today, we tear our gaze away from the shifting horizons of the Broken World and gaze upon how we created the Decayed creatures that inhabit it.
Like everything else in Broken Weave, we began with a heavy concept period, where artists explored silhouettes and tones in search of the creatures that excited them.
Decay is an ever present part of the Broken World, a corrupting force that corrupts, twists, and rearranges everything it touches into strange and unusual forms. As a result, we wanted to let our imaginations carry us forward, and set out to find the strange, surreal, and sometimes beautiful.
From here, we began to develop some of the choice ideas we liked the look of into more fleshed out concepts, forcing these Decayed creatures out into the light.
Join us in our next dev blog, where we’ll continue our exploration of these broken monsters, with more art and developer insights.
Broken Weave comes to Kickstarter in early February, so don’t forget to head to the Kickstarter page and sign up to be notified when it launches!
