If you've ever marveled at the striking visual style at play in Foam Sword's upcoming co-op action-adventure game Knights & Bikes, good news: At GDC 2018, Foam Sword's Rex Crowle shared exactly how he created it!

His talk was great and concise, walking through his artistic process and showcasing how it's been shaped by the lessons Crowle learned during his time at Media Molecule directing Tearaway and Tearaway Unfolded. 

Notably, his session examined how the art doesn't just represent how its creator sees the game world, but also how the game characters perceive their own surroundings. By discussing its early influences, and showing its ugly early-development stages, Crowle shed light on how a veteran artist can find and define a unique aesthetic.

It was a great talk, one that's well worth watching (for free!) on the official GDC YouTube channel!
