    New concept art!

    At number one we have an early alien penguin. This won’t appear in the DLC and I’m not really gonna miss it. I’m not exactly getting a penguin feel from it.

    At number two, the return of the pinnicarid! Turns out we will be getting the black one! It’s got some alternate color schemes, all of which are nice, and I’ll be happy with whatever one they choose for the DLC.

    And finally, we’ve got a new creature! Meet the Titan Holefish, one of the weirdest (and coolest) creatures being added to the expansion, IMO. It’s biology is incredibly bizarre and seems to be something like an ocean sunfish mixed with a cuckoo’s victim, yet they’re symbiotic! Can’t wait to see these guys drifting about the Arctic seas.


    EDIT:

    I WAS RIGHT. They ARE seal-like animals that go on land but hunt at sea! Seriously, read the photo description. It’s literally a seal. (This is of an old pinnicarid but it’s only been changed in appearance I imagine)

    I'm hoping for C or D. Also, the Pinnicarid is SO CUTE.
    It is my opinion that the best place to build a base is the northern end of the Sparse Reef.

    This game has a history of cute creatures. Until they open their jaws at least.

    Eh. I have a soft spot for creatures from the Cambrian period. Like Anomalocaris, or Opabinia.

    We just got a BUTTLOAD of new concept art, much of which is going unused. Since there is so much I won’t put my opinions on each for now.

    The unused stuff:

    These are some unused concepts for the alien penguin, and they confirm the mysterious blue creature is in fact an old alien penguin. All of these are very nice, and it’s a shame we won’t get them ingame.

    This is an old sketch of the pinnicarid. Nothing too interesting.

    Here’s an old squidshark. Not too different, but I definitely prefer the new one.

    7yit4v2jxrqk.jpeg
    ntg7beyfbob2.jpeg
    These three are some unused variants of regular creatures. We have a shuttlebug, a crabsquid, and a Mesmer(?) All seem obsessed with batteries for various reasons. I’m really sad we aren’t getting that Mesmer, especially mesmer B. IT’S SO CUTEEE

    This is a creature only known as the shard, which is like a bizarre knifefish that uses ice like squid ink. It’s a shame we’re losing such a fascinating creature, but I would imagine that ice dummy ability wou be difficult to animate.

    The stuff we will get/not sure about:

    Here’s a closer look at the Titan Holefish symbionts. They’ll be fun to place on the taxonomic chart.

    This awesome beast is called the Brute Shark, and it’s a stalker/boneshark size animal. It may have been replaced by the squidshark but I certainly hope we get both of them.

    Here’s some anatomical details on the pinnicarid. This seems to confirm we’re getting pinnicarid A (new set of patterns)/pinnicarid C (original pattern set) It has neat anatomy, and for once it’s mouth isn’t terrifying!

    Here’s some details on the final alien penguin. I’m glad we can finally see how it’s feet work.

    Wow, that's gives a very alien feel!

    What are those red things then? Some kind of terrestrial giant tubeworm? Maybe in a light breeze their tentacles flow out to snare the odd passing skyray.

    That’s what there called ok. I thought the same thing about what they looked like

    I SERIOUSLY hope we get something akin to a sea angel, those things are really cute and giant ones in an alien containment? Heck yeah!
