Creating the Game's First Alien Race - The Kett

Creating the Game's First Alien Race - The Kett -

Game Informer is continuing its exclusive look at various components of Mass Effect: Andromeda with today's video being about the creation of the game's first race, the Kett. Bioware has been aiming for a much more "organic" look and feel for the Andromeda races, something exemplified in the Kett. The more organic feel of the Kett extends to their armors, structures and just about every other constructed aspect of Kett culture.

The design process began with the story and then moved on to creating the faces of the Kett, MEA's antagonist race. According to Art Director Joel MacMillan, clothing was not optional for the Kett even though the team originally pushed that idea forward in the design process for quite some time. 

Other topics in the video include:

  • creating eyes that allow players to find empathy with the Kett
  • giving a militaristic look to them under the auspices of the design protocol including bone armor and the variety of looks it gave the team
  • choosing the right 6-8 silhouettes and start adding details

It's a fantastic look at both the design process and the Kett themselves, so head on over to the link above to see the video and the attendant concept art that is within it.
