Bread Team talks about the visual inspiration behind Phantom Trigger

A portion of a NWR interview with Viktor Solodilov and Denis Novikov of Bread Team...

NWR: When people from the PC space saw art and footage from the game a lot of them noted visual similarities to Hyper Light Drifter, but then again I can think way back to games like Out of this World that also had somewhat similar alien landscapes and looks. Where did some of your inspirations come from for the aesthetics, in particular the often unusual enemies?

DN: This is an excellent question. We were inspired by many games. When I was working on the game environment, I was heavily inspired by Soul Sacrifice. We like to experiment with mixing up unexpected things - for example, a level with a lollipop jungle, covered by spiderwebs. This creates very unusual environment.

I really like using bright colors in the game. While making Divide by Sheep, we started experimenting with using different contrasting bright colors. Mixing up dark and neon colors creates very interesting effects. We really enjoyed combining those bright neon colors and dark backgrounds in Phantom Trigger.

We wanted to show the enemies in the game as a part of one organism - since they are a part of Stan’s mind. We like to have one rule for all the enemies. In our case, this rule is eyes. Multiple eyes! That’s how Bubble-heads and other monsters in the game were created.

Runner3 blog update - The Mechiknight!

In Runner3, we’re expanding the depth of interaction between CommanderVideo and his world—not only via the environment, but also via helpful elements like vehicles and harmful things like enemies.

Case in point, this handsome devil…

Most items in RUNNER and Runner2 can be “defeated” by a single action, making our cast of enemies feel somewhat… fleeting; you never really get to know them.

But this new enemy we’re calling the Mechiknight will be a nuisance for several beats, forcing CommanderVideo to change up his strategy before being rid of the thing for good.
