Development

Originally, Garg was like a playful, dog-like creature, who gives a greedy treasure hunter his just desserts for breaking and entering. My goal was to playfully deconstruct the “heroic treasure hunter” archetype.

Later he became a more timid, tragic character, emphasizing his loneliness. In this version of the story, he genuinely trusts the treasure hunter before being swindled.

As I developed the character of Hunter, Garg returned to his prankster ways, this time as more of a fun, video game boss-type character.

I loved the concept of Garg being the environment, extending from walls and creating ripples in the concrete.

My goals for Garg’s character design:

  • gargoyle
  • physically strong…
  • …but a total goofball
  • vibrant secondary colors complement those of his adversary, Hunter
