I've been digging through old work that was done on homefront and wanted to scatter it across this blog. I like looking back to see what we started with, and what we ended up with in the final game. This concept was basically an idea we were playing with, with the idea of the game taking place in a flooded manhattan. The idea was that the city was linked with man made bridges between buildings in the city, something that could have been very cool.
This second image was a detailed sketch of how we wanted the US Heavy Assault soldiers to look. I think the final color pallete and most the packs ended up completely different. but the heavy ballistic mask and everything else remained. The biggest challenge to creating the military MP characters was keeping them a "real world" military force while still making them feel like they lived in a starved grim future.
