Rebel Squad




Here's something I've been working on every now and then. It's a little project based on the strategy games by Julian Gollop. You've probably already heard of X-COM, but he's also responsible for the Rebelstar and Laser Squad games. I thought it would be fun to take those universes and merge them into one. Well, here it is:

The Rebel Squad Project

As you can see, I went for a cute comic style. To be frank I'm not that fond of the realistic approach that has been used a lot in various remakes. The older games were cute and colorful, and X-COM featured a comic style intro. A lot of people I hear talking about X-COM also seem to want to retain or expand on the relatively complex gameplay with the base, hunt, character and strategy elements. Not many games have that kind of width and depth to boast.

"BUG's": At the Story Timeline it says 2050, it should be 2450 and it says 2013, it should be 2513 !!!

Very neat stuff.

...Why do the rebel space-suits look like they should actually be called Krikkit Battle-robots? :D

Very neat stuff.

The white suits, I meant. It must be the padding.

I really dig these! Those round-headed moonbase suits with the attachable shells are the most exciting design to me. I oft forget that spacesuits nowadays are still big, baggy, and clumsy looking things. For good reasons though. I like those old mercury era suits that are more akin to jet fighter pressure suits. That's probably why I'm drawn to those.

Nice work! I'm always excited to see your projects.

As always it is cool to read your explorations in different universes. Makes me wonder how the original creators imagined it... often I guess they did not :p

Keep creating and extrapolating!
