Round 5 (vs. Mister December), Part 5 - The Elephantine Start



The idea of Gyrode giving in to his conscience was picked up on by both us and Ashley, as she produced a spectator entry of Gyrode reviving Mister's father, Cyan.

I'll admit wholeheartedly that I never "got" Dr. Raines, unless it turns out that all there is to him is that he's a complete douchebag. He turned up after Round 3 to "look after" Mister, and starts by outright lying to the kid by telling him it's okay to kill people. Then he goes on to get Mister a little too involved with the Docs, who are the worst of influences. He's a brain surgeon, a sadist and a formidable fighter...dude was asking to end up in a fight with an ex-KGB karate disco champion!

I can't remember why the first dimension we created for the race was full of clothed titan mammoths. I might have been playing Shadow of the Colossus at the time? No idea.



I believe Sean's stage direction for that first world was "draw a load of giant things that look like something out of a Miyazaki animé". If I'd actually had time to do research, I'm sure I could have drawn something that better suited that description but considering the epic scale of this entry versus the amount of time we had, this was the best I could do.

It also occurred to us after I drew it that Gyrode probably stepped over those Doonlup before he realised Raines was there. We kept it in because we thought it was funny.
