ADMIN EDIT: In an attempt to separate the speculations on the content of the photo leaked by the clandestine organization known as "Spirit of 1029" and the rest of their codes I'm splitting the original discussion in two separate threads


Connell 01-26-2017 06:23 AM

I'm genuinely starting to think Soulstorm will be entirely black and white haha. Cool! And well done everyone for guessing most aspects of it! Really nice render. Also, there a number or something in the bottom right corner. EDIT: It's 010101BB's name.

It's here!!!

TopHattedTime 01-26-2017 06:29 AM

So there is a Glukkon in that pic!! (Just not where we thought it was lol)

E: Also, the image is so high-res I think my heart might explode SO MUCH DETAIL!!

Nicky Ali 01-26-2017 06:29 AM

😱
This makes me wonder if they'll go a bit further to give each Mudokon some more visual diversity, rather than all of them looking the same. It's a pretty big undertaking if they do!

Xavier 01-26-2017 06:29 AM

Well, I am not disappointed... and seeing how much I was hyped it's no small feat. :D

That's a great looking picture and I love what it suggests in terms of the direction they are taking for Soulstorm.

Agreed. I'm liking what I'm seeing, the atmosphere comes accross well and it's visually great. Looks really crisp and cutting edge. The hype continues. Calling it now Soulstorm will be entirely B&W tho.

Do you think the line on that photo could be like an old-timey filter to make it look like an old black and white film?

Gunnr 01-26-2017 06:33 AM

A glukk in the back and one, two, three little mudokons carry sacks with their numbers on em


I always wanted to see what the glukkons would look like in SS! I am just lovin' the atmosphere and cant wait to decrypt the nect 4 pic! X)

I doubt it lol. I'm still waiting for a properly coloured pic of Abe so I can change my Avatar 😤

Samtastic 01-26-2017 06:39 AM

it looks like black and white images of Necrum Mines.

SligValet 01-26-2017 06:44 AM

Is the picture high res enough to discern what's in the reflection of BB's eyes? Something's very clearly shining through there

Michael 01-26-2017 06:44 AM

Another observation- going by the facial features, that glukkon doesn't look like Dripik, Aslik or Phleg.

While it's entirely possible its a generic gluk, to me he actually looks like Molluck, especially like his New n Tasty character model.

TopHattedTime, your mention of an old time filter got me thinking. How sure are we this is an Exoddus location? Perhaps the 'old' photo filter is supposed to indicate this happened in the past. Perhaps it's a flashback to RuptureFarms?

Shade_Meadows 01-26-2017 06:45 AM

YEAH!
We can see that is a (at least i think i see it) in-game render!
and... this Glukkon is no Glulkkon we know so far, he may be only a Wanna-be or it can be Molluck (because it is clearly not one of the four distinct Glukkons from Exoddus)

V_O_T 01-26-2017 06:45 AM

That Gluk just looks so damn scary. No really, its putting me off. I feel like its eyes watching me. Like a grey peering in from a window at night, malevolent and curious :/


As for the pic entirely its absolutely fantastic.

On a side note, does anyone recall our original reactions to NnT when it was at this stage? We all went nuts over the smallest teases. I dont know how else to word it but seeing as the devs are listening, we do need to be critical, even at this stage. So far though I think this is a great step in the right direction.

WOW!
We commented almost the same, almost the same time, my bad! ;)
i agree!

Varrok 01-26-2017 06:50 AM

The bombs are smartly disguised as sleeping bags. I see everything goes just as the Glukkons planned.

Haha no worries!

Perhaps the black and white photos are to make it harder for us to discern the location, since the levels all have such distinct colour schemes?

These were my first thoughts as well. At second glance, I don't think it is Molluck's model - Molluck had a somewhat pronounced nose-ridge and wider squid head (or whatever we're calling them). So yeah, it's probably just a generic Gluk, which makes sense all things considered.

Kakashi 01-26-2017 07:00 AM

New Glukkon in pic?
 
Does anyone notice that the Glukkon in the pic does NOT resemble like the Jr Execs, VP Aslek, Gen Dripz, Dir Phleg and the Brewmaster?

At first I thought, Molluck? Then I figured...no way...he got electrocuted...and this Glukk looks a bit different than Molluck...

So I'm wondering, in Soul Storm, are we gonna have a new Glukk Smuck?

Varrok 01-26-2017 07:00 AM

I don't find the Glukkon particularily scary. Not scarier than in the first games, at least.

The mudokon looks like an empty shell of a person, which a is far more accurate image (considering the enviroment they live in) than mudokons in the first games, and it's great!

EDIT: I think hope that glukkon is that green-suit Glukkon from AO's intro.

Other pic I wanted to attach

Guineapiglet 01-26-2017 07:08 AM

Nice! The graphics are looking good. I'm excited.

"They are not safe. They are oppressed. [...] We will encourage people to take a stand, we will spread the message and refuse to sit in silence. We will save the Mudokons."
That sounds a bit activist-y :d

emmarose 01-26-2017 07:09 AM

Woah! I did not see that Glukkon being there at all! No wonder there was an X scratched in there on the origional version :p. The detail is fantastic!

In addition to the numbers, there also seems to be a finger-print on over the lower part of the tailing Mudokon, probably nothing though, perhaps just keeping with the weathered photo effect.

Might be a bit unlikely considering the fact that he blew up at the end of Oddysee :goof:

Oh trust me, when they show gameplay footage I'll be going into full armchair-game designer mode. It's always better to get criticisms out there and heard so the game can be as good as possible before release!

TheManFromMudos 01-26-2017 07:13 AM

A Glukkon supervisor? Now there's something we haven't seen before. And the way he's staring straight out of the screen at you? Pretty unnerving...

Shade_Meadows 01-26-2017 07:18 AM

Just a thought... The Black-and-White thing, could mean that this is a flashback? (not likely) but maybe this is before Exoddus, maybe this game starts a little earlier than Exoddus.
This could be the beginning of the slavery OR preparing new Muds for the Necrum mines... which means... ouch

Gunnr 01-26-2017 07:20 AM

Which glukkon could this guy be, or is he a new one?
