Second round! this week we present you with the first thing that can(and will) kill you, a plant!

nice plant

I know, I know a plant doesn’t sound so threatening, you don’t see B movies with killer plants but they star in kickass musical and give out some thoughtful life advices too.

Except our plant it’s just here to kill you because how else a plant will survive in a cave?!? So remember, be a good gardener and feed your plants and they might even let you live the next run in Back in the Caves!(not really)

The design and animation are made by our fellow graphic Andrea “Finlith” Sala and it’s just one of his many creations you’ll see in the final release!

Howdy soon to be cave dwellers ?

So far we showed you a brief teaser trailer of what’s going on in the Ornitocopter mind, Back in the Caves (BitC) will be our first adventure in the game development world, not an easy walk in the park I dare say.

Thankfully we work with some amazing people, you have alredy saw the work of our graphic artist Cammello but here is the first original art ever for the project:

Sure they all look happy...

The request was something like this “make it a caveman, make it rough, think about The Flintstones meeting Shank” and this table was the incredible answer. As you can see we choose style N.5 for Mr. Caveman but that doesn’t mean we discard the rest of them! Variety is the key for a roguelike and we’ll try to implent it in every single aspect of the game.

Check out for more work from Cammello (camel in italian if you were wondering, don’t worry we got you cover)

As you notice form the title we’ll try to post regular update here and on the other social networks (that’s what all the cool kids do nowdays right?) so subscribe to our RSS (RIP Google reader, you’ll be missed)! like on Facebook! Follow on Twitter! Circle on Google+! Do what they do on Tumblr!

Ornitocopter out! Ciao!
