Wallpaper pattern – Short movie update #3

Wallpaper pattern – Short movie update #3

Ever since Seasons the wallpaper designs are one of the most important elements for getting the right atmosphere in a Cube Escape room. So when we started working on the short movie we knew that we had to find the right wallpaper pattern.

Luckily Jitka, the production designer of the short movie, created this pattern of a moth which fitted perfectly in our new room. She choose the moth as a pattern for its fast repeating cycles of life and its eerie and strange beauty. As any insect, it is also symbolic for its state of trance such as its attraction to light, the constant thwacking into the lightbulb until they perish… Something that relates to the story of the short movie 🙂 On the second picture you can see the first ingame teaser!

    True artists never would never tolerate sloppy details.

    Why is the mug not Rusty Lake themed? ?

      Maybe it is, but we’re not looking close enough. This was meant as a joke but knowing them it might very well be true.
