Bismo & Plom make the Difference

Well, hello there! It’s been a while.

On my first post I gave a short insight on the Character Design for our two little friends, Bismo and Plom. A few months have passed since then and the world of Mercury Shift has grown along with its characters.

Feel free to check out the video, which shows all types of different animations that have been developed up until now.  Of course there’s still more to come in the future and a few more things I’d like to show you in this article.
