Last fall/winter, I had to put hold on purchasing artwork due to financial constraints. But things are better now, and I've commissioned my artist to do the 10th race, the Zygobies. The results are fantastic! The original description from kickstarter are as follow:
"Spores that has taken over various hosts, often without hosts noticing it, as their personalities and thinking are gradually altered. They are excellent spies for this very reason, and are heavily mistrusted, because you never know if some of zygos has rubbed off on you. Their society is a pure meritocracy, with ranking based directly on the host's brain mass as their intelligence is limited by the size of the host's brain. Despite their name connotations, they are very cunning and clever, not to be trusted."
The concept is that they conceal their host's bodies, so that others won't know which species have fallen under Zygobies' control. They are master spies and don't care what methods they use to extract information. They also use stealth styled ships that are designed for speed. With those in mind, here's a preview of the Zygobies!
We now have 10 races' artwork done! I'm having the artist do space combat graphics now. For those who don't know which race imitates which race in MoO 1, here's a quick recap:
Humans - Humans
Nurds - Psilons
Zygobies - Darloks
Salix Cybornia - Klackons
Zero People - Meklars
Araneas - Sakkras
Velociraptors - Bulrathis
Pyrrhans - Alkari
Morions - Silicoids
Space Hamsters - Mrrshans
Later, after all other artwork are done for making a complete MoO 1 clone, I will then commission work on additional 3 races and leaders for MoO 2's version as per kickstarter's stated goal.
