The story of a great adventure
ET : Are they really intelligent ?
It has become a common concept for everyone that if there are ET, they MUST be more intelligent... but why ? Maybe we haven't found anything yet (or at least anything was announce yet) because we ain't searching the right thing. We are searching stuff that come out of our own science fiction and we never thought about the hypothesis that maybe WE are the sci-fi of them ? That idea of them being equal, at most, but different, was the start of this crazy story. We imagine people that have live their own life, on their own planet and timelapse. Similar to our. What would happen ? probably different stuff than here, but not so much more or less. Stuff would be different because we would probably think different, but with equal evolution time there is no reason to think they would be far more advance than us. One thing we may have in common, the search for Extraterrestrial Life.
We are the monster !
Yes we are ! I take into consideration that if they have similar evolution but different technology and that they are seeking life too, well then there is a high chance that they have sci-fi too and that we are the monster, we are the alien, we are scary ! The comic book evoke this through encounter between the Zarin and natural force. We have water all over the place, what if other species don't have water, what if you see the sea for the first time in your life and that you never heard of it. What is calming for us could be really threatening from an untrained eye who see this weird material/creature moving toward you trying to grab you with the wave. The reaction from an outsider to everyday object could be really interesting and funny.
As stated before, Zoïle get a mission briefing from the high council and form his own squad. One of the them, Guigner, is a true believer of the "tall colored one". (Yeah we are afraid of little green alien, they are afraid of tall colored one...). Their mission is to investigate our planet in search for intelligent life form. Nobody really think that there is life here because the CO2 level is higher than life could sustain for more than 20 years, at least, based on their biology. Still, Zoïle take his mission very seriously and depart to earth. The army, desperate to get rid of Zoïle toxic behavior, was sending them to what they believe to be an insignificant mission that could leave them away from the real business for a couple of time. Left with a ship in a poor condition, the crew risk their life in the deep space. Approaching earth, mechanical trouble put their safety at risk, the only hope is to land and hope for the best. The group crash into earth, spreading spaceship piece all over the globe following it's explosion. The group survive thanks to their anti-gravity shield armor, they face no fall damage. They are in shock and wake up in an unknown location. They are afraid in this very hostile area, their first goal is to settle a camp, their primary mission is to find proof of intelligent life form. It's a recon mission, they don't know if we are hostile or not, they don't want to get notice, they want to get safe, take proof and repair/rebuild their ship to reach freedom. Through their journey, they will discover new and hidden information about their original mission that will change their destiny forever.
We hope to explore our universe with a different eye, through the eye of a visitor, we want this story to be fun and believable in a way. I have attach a small section of the very early sketch of the original story comic book. The entire story and book will be completely redraw and rewritten to provide a high quality final product. There will be different technology, your alien will feel overpower but their weakness put them at risk. We want the world to feel both pretty and dangerous and I hope you'll find the plot interesting. The game will unlock many information about the species and their mission. Your primary objective will be to rebuild your ship to leave this god damn planet (isn't it Ripley that said that in Alien ?). The hidden objective and story will be revealed in-game while you progress and you will be unlocking the real primary objective. We don't want to spoiled it here, but I expect some of you to expect what will happen.

I nearly missed this week blog, my personal life was a bit troubled this week, but I am here. Last time, i was hoping to get more comment to reveal a tutorial on how to draw Zoïle. We didn't get enough comment, but I will share a video anyway next week. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss it. The tutorial will include both the sketch and inking.
