Crixa Eksekaren Ships


The enemies in Crixa were a bug-like ship called the Eksekaren, the name having been thought up by Alen, our visual designer. The design of the bug ships was kind of a joke at first, but the versatility of the metaphor eventually won us over.

This is a "glamour shot" of the first bug ships. All the ships in Crixa (with the exception of the Korves Base) are flat planar mapped. You can see streaking in the textures at the edges of the models because of this. However, since we were doing a 2D top-down shooter, planar mapping worked just fine, and allowed for very fast implementation with good quality.
