Stomach punk inspiration
Stomach punk is definitely a quite different concept than anything we’ve seen in Valorant before, and it turns out that Riot has been working on it since May 2019!
As Valorant’s art director Sean Marino discusses, “Originally this started as a steampunk exploration, and you usually have a lot of greasy brass, copper and gear everywhere. We have seen a lot of this in games and other media and did not just want to be another generic version of a fantasy that already exists. ”
“We sat down to work on the design and make it feel like it came from a different world than you usually see with steampunk. We developed a background story and a source of technology for it, where instead of electricity being discovered at the turn of the century, it was magical. This discovery pushed society much further, and we see technology from that time begin to merge with more modern designs. ”
“We still wanted to show where the actual physical technology was at the time, so we decided to include mechanical joints for each weapon so that it would still have the gentle 19th-century locomotive feel.”
