However, it's storyline and designs are so cool that maybe, one day, someone will make a comic, a book, a movie, or even a machines 2 (Wow, I sounded like if I was angry or something, naaa... just expressing myself   )

No lying here, but, I have actually had a scenario in my mind a few years ago about Machines on a planet kinda like the demo-version planet, the first few frames (in my mind) were about a red transporter on his way collecting resources, then the camera pans out a little further and displayed the area around him, which was abandoned (which introduced the viewer to the world of Machines, kinda) and then, the Transporter made its way to its homebase, where you saw the rest of his Machines... =P Some'ing like that.

GOTTA get working on things like that once I'm not this busy =P

Thanks for that  :wink:

...don't worry, there's always time, and I can help  :smilydude: . Maybe if I make a storyboard or a comic strip... something to show some scenes, some "shots" for MACHINES 2, then it could become part of the planning right?  :-)

I would love to see how this'd turn out with you as a pro drawer ;)

EDIT: You know... Dead Space kinda started building their fanbase like that... First, they release the first game, then came some more games (mainly for other stations than the PC), followed by some more comics and even a book... I mean, it may be somewhat different, but... This COULD work... I have always wanted to do something a bit more... literature-aimed...

Honestly, I believe the Machines story had potential for something literature based or a film. It would be pretty interesting to see the machines somewhere else. (We should also make a really kewlz teaser.  :roll:)

Hey, I made new drawings!  :smilydude:

This design may have a lot of potential. Any comments are welcome  :-)

Ps: that attempt of making a reaper is sooooo embarassing!!!!!  :oops: it's kind of an epic fail in contrast with my other drawings  :-P

Very nice. Seems like the trooper needs a bobble head for those eyes though.

Basically a warlord head. He kind of makes the rest of the machines look like toys though.  8-)

One remark, though: wouldn't it be more awesome and 'mech'-like if the units actually had built-in/attached weapon-systems (much like the original) instead of them sporting a seperate rifle? This makes them seem too... 'human'-like.

To be honest, I could never really see a humanoid soldier machine fighting alongside the style of the current machines. Their appearance is far from humanoids, so it would just make a mockery of the others.

We could make a two legged machine, but not something that goes too far off the line, such as requiring a handheld weapon. Say you wanted to make something as tall as a knight with an arm cannon. In my opinion, that would be an example of a unit more eligible than one taller than most machines, running around with a pistol or some other gun.

I would say that if a "humanoid" mech were to fit alongside the other machines, it would have to be, as I said earlier, about only as tall as a knight, with short(er) limbs.

On a side note, do you think you'd be able to make a 32x32 image representing OpenMachines? I have no idea where Druyii went. You seem to be quite a creative person, plus you have the ability to use image editing programs (as I understood).
