Love the design, the machinegun crab-lookin' thingy reminds me of Wasteland's Scorpitrons. Something about giant killer robots strapped to the teeth with weapons is so appealing to fight with and against.

I assume this is a snapshot of some game in development?

Oh, yeah, this is mainly just, "not dead yet", for the people who vaguely remember. The game's an increasingly-complex action roguelike; it's like Smash T.V. had a weird baby w/ Teleglitch and Diablo, kind of. I'm just about done with major systems and it has a fully-playable loop where you can go on a run into a dungeon, return and craft things and upgrade your character, etc.

Hey Xenoargh! Cool to see you're still working on your game. I like the visuals. That crab thing reminded me of an old favourite of mine:

Do you do all the artwork yourself?

No, I don't do anything like all the artwork, I simply don't have enough time available.
