Incredipede developer Northway Games has released a video depicting the evolution of art style in the recently released title, from its early days as a screenshot of a simple 2D prototype to its eventual woodcut-like art style.
As narrated by artist Thomas Shahan, the game's art style had at one point deviated from the initial woodcut concept and instead adopted an inkwash-meets-water-color line-art style. Eventually Shahan settled for the thick-cut woodcut look seen in the final game, using a background environment based on the Wichita Mountains.
Early concept art and sketches are shown throughout the video, as well as a description on the method Shahan used to create the woodcut style throughout the game.
Incredipede is currently available for $14.99 on PC and Mac.
