Treasures from the old days

So I checked out my old server and found some quite interesting images I felt I had to share.

From Feb 2005:

This is an actual proof-of-concept file for Energetic. It was made to convince our artist (Nicodemus) that the player could be bigger than the NPCs.

From October 2005:

The oldest surviving image of the HPL engine...nanananana...

From November 2005:

First proper map tests of Penumbra (tech demo)!

From December 2005:

The unbirth site actually got hacked back in the day! Turned out it was through the forum, so had to close that down that for good. (It was actually through this forum that I met Luis who is now also part of FG! So kinda sad none of that is saved.)

From January 2006:

Sketch of enemy for Penumbra (tech demo) that never made it in. Interestingly this was based on the lovecraftian beast Gug, and so was the Brute for Amnesia.

Environment sketches for Penumbra (tech demo) that I forgot ever was made.

An early sketch of the much popular and non-existing Hunter enemy!
