Day 71 Conduit 2 Map Detail Analysis: The Face in Dig Site

#1_SignalPosted 3/9/2014 10:03:41 PM
Obviously for the past few days I've been looking at the details of the maps more closely and posting about them. Some of these details have an impact on gameplay some may not. Some of them simply add to the aesthetic of the game. I wish that there was a little more known about the art direction of the game, because some of the details are quite interesting.

One of the interesting details of the Dig Site map (a map which I personally can't stand) is a face carved into the vertical surface of the stone walls. It's on both walls, with the same image repeated.

I really just like the style of this "carving." Here's a link:

It's basically the same in the Lost City map, except in Lost City, the stone wall is removed below the carving, and that becomes one of the openings to the rest of the map. It's funny, I never noticed many of these details while playing the game, only now when I'm looking at videos. I guess usually I was focused on the players at the top of the steps under the carving that were shooting at me, like Bionic-War.

The more I look at the maps, the more details I'm seeing.

What do you think about the face carvings in Dig Site and Lost City? I think they look like coins. Have you noticed similar carvings on other maps? Do you think details like this adds to the aesthetic of the game?

Thanks for contributing. Please post.

I think it adds to the Aztec theme of the map. I like Digsite. In fact, I'm revising it in Halo 4 but much bigger! I like natural maps. So Signal, how have you been in... years?

Bio's one of the most influential players and posters of Conduit 2. He introduced us to the best clan ever (join BIO^ btw), his playstyle and skill were unmatched, and his level of maturity will never be surpassed.

The Face is pretty cool too.
