X-Com - The Chryssalid - ORTHO
Here we are at CHOW #52 - ready to shock again:
We have the pleasure of havig a legendary designer as our guest:
Julian Gollop is the creator of the X-Com series and he has a topic for us today.
Here he goes:
So the character I have chosen is a re-imagining of the most feared
alien from X-Com - The Chryssalid.
The Chryssalids one of the main alien terror species in the PC game
'X-COM: UFO Defense'. They are roughly humanoid in size, with an
insect-like exoskeleton and menacing claws. They strike fear into X-Com
soldiers in a major way. The reason? They turn civilians into zombies by
injecting a parasitical Chyssalid spore. Since the Chryssalids attack in
densely populated civilian zones, the task of the X-Com commander
becomes perilous. Every civilian is a potential zombie recruit, but it
is much worse than that. A new Chryssalid will emerge from a zombie in a
frighteningly short space of time. It is entirely possible for an X-Com
commander to find his squad transformed into a horde of Chryssalids,
with no hope of salvation.
The task is to re-imagine the Chryssalid. How can it's parasitical
nature be portrayed? Perhaps it has some human genetic material combined
with its own? There could be a hint of some human features mixed with
something horribly alien. For added effect, the creature can be
portrayed shedding its human-zombie host.
Here are some informational links:
