Alien Art

One of the many strange things you can find in Approaching Infinity is lost artwork from alien civilizations. It may be drifting through space, found in ruined cities, or on the floating remains of dead spacecraft.

Most of these images are contributions from Kickstarter backers, others are made by me or David (AI’s artist). You might recognize that one is an early promo shot of “Dungeonmans” (Jim of AdventurePro was a big help to me, and also we went on a real life Burger Quest together…)

So what’s up with this art? Well, I want more!

So if you’re an artist (and I mean pretty much an kind / medium / style / skill-level of artist), link me your work and I might put it in the game!

What do I get out of this?

  • More art for my players to find.

What do you get out of this?

  • More people to see your art.

Do you have to pay me?

  • No.

Will I pay you?

  • Nope.

It’s just something fun to do for everyone involved.

Are there any restrictions?

  • Images will be rendered on screen at 256 x 256 pixels
  • No overtly sexual images
  • Nothing considered “offensive”

What about promotional images, like the “Dungeonmans” one?

Yes, absolutely. There is actually a prominent alien race in Approaching Infinity known as the Bankers and they are mega-capitalists. They would love to display your advertisements! (But you still don’t have to pay, I’m just putting it in context.)

So what are you waiting for? I love pixel art, oil paintings, pictures of sculpture, generative art (oh yes PCG ART!), all kinds of things. Show me!

Wait, are you still here?

Ok, I’ll tell you something:

One of my big plans is to have an “Art Contest” on Steam. But it’s not for making art, it’s for finding it in the game.

At some point in the future, a new in-game event will start, centered around discovering lost art. Whoever finds each piece of art first will have their name immortalized as its discoverer, and that will be displayed under each piece of art for all to see.
