Philippine Pre-Colonial Sketch Dump pt. 1
Genre; History Strategy Heroes
What comes to mind when I say Philippine Pre-Colonial Era. Is it Warriors? Epic Lores? Weapons? Dudes in bahag? No Idea? Philippine Pre-Colonial (let’s call it PPC, instead) Era (or the time before the Spaniards came) takes us back in time when Filipino land wasn’t called Philippines yet. It’s also a popular theme used in TVs, movies, and games (usually given a modern twist) to portray a very Filipino ancestral touch.
Can you name some more?
Moving on, I’m in the mood to do something very Filipino. Something that digs right in the roots. Whenever I hear PPC Era, the word Pintados always come to mind. Pintados are warriors rumored to gain strength from their tattoos. But only those who have gone through battles are worthy of these tattoos. That means, the more tattoos you have, the more awesome you get!
What do you mean, we're shy? We just have sore-eyes... That's all.
And thinking more about it, gaining a tattoo means earning a rank more than your co-warriors! It’s like one of those leveling up schemes in RPGs! Except you get to choose what to paint on your body. Every tattoo you choose gives you a stat boost, or a new skill. Think about it...
What game are we talking about? We’ll keep it a secret for now... You can try and guess! Any Indigo Entertainment employee spilling the beans gets to buy us pizza. I’ll update with more sketches and raw concepts as we develop this thing. :D
