New Game Looks Like a Playable Moebius Comic #SciFiSunday
Legendary comic book artists Moebius (aka Jean Giraud) has inspired many games over the years. But Sable might be the height of Moebius-inspired design in video game art. Here’s more from Rock Paper Shotgun:
Clean lines. Warm colours. The lonely, quiet desert. There’s a clear similarity between this game and the work of French artist Jean Giraud, aka Moebius. Conscious influences are easy to spot. Celebration through imitation — and not in a negative way! This is not plagiarism. This is tearing your idols apart and using their remains to build something new.
Jean Giraud worked on so many comics and movies he used pen names to keep different careers separated. He used the name Gir for Blueberry, a hyper-realistic Western series. The name Moebius he reserved for his science fiction comics drawn in “ligne claire”, the typical style of the Franco-Belgian school of comics. It’s the same style also used by We All End Up Alone, a promising game still in development about battling cancer and fighting nightmares: uniform lines, no cross-hatching or shadows, and simple characters imposed over ultra-detailed backgrounds.
