Look at that. I mean, just look at that. The "game" in question's name? From The Heaven To The Stars. Pixel artist Yuriy "Megapont" Plekhanov lists it on his website as an "unfinished game experiment". But will it ever become a, er, finished game experiment? That's still very much up in the air.
And also this:
Yeah, I want to explore this place. Badly.
Via email, Plekhanov explained that "first I need to rush to earn some cash," meaning that "for now it's just a concept art." However, he added: "I have a unique idea and rough scenario for if it will be a game [eventually]. It will be something like Quest maybe."
I'm not quite sure which Quest he was referring to (the Nintendo 64 game, maybe?), and I haven't heard back from him since. Hopefully he'll be able to tell me more, though.
In the meantime, check out more gorgeous images of the world Plekhanov dreamed up. It really is stunning.
Oh the possibilities. Why do people live in weird mushroom homes? What's the deal with that crazy rune circle? Is that second-to-last pic some kind of sky fortress, or like, a long-dead stone colossus? I MUST KNOW. Fingers crossed that this becomes a thing... someday.
