Artist Creates Fantastic LucasArts-Inspired The Thing Graphic

Irish freelance video game artist Paul Conway, aka DoomCube, is one of those names that needs to be seared into your brain. He’s worked on approximately 115 different projects since entering the video game world back in 2005 and is known in particular for his fantastic pixel art. Recently, he finished work on Gunman Taco Truck, which saw him join forces with John Romero of Doom fame.

Recently, Conway delighted Twitter and the rest of the internet with a pixel art image of John Carpenter’s The Thing, which he modeled to look like a still from a classic LucasArt point-and-click adventure game. If games like Loom and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis wowed you as a child, his image will surely trigger a wave of nostalgia!

I got in touch with Conway to see if he could provide me with work-in-progress images of the final piece, which he graciously provided. They’re a great way to see the process of creating something that may seem simple at first glance but, in reality, takes a lot of planning and thought. You can see them below but make sure to keep on scrolling to hear about his upcoming comedy/horror point-and-click game The Darkside Detective! Also, there are a few additional images that Conway provided that I think will appeal to all you horror fans!

Synopsis:
Where cultists crawl, where demons dwell, where the occult… occults? *ahem* That’s where you’ll find Detective Francis McQueen, lead investigator (of two) of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division. When evil darkens the doorsteps of Twin Lakes City – hell, even when it just loiters around shop fronts or hangs out in shady alleyways – he’s there, ready to investigate the cases that nobody else will.

He is The Darkside Detective.

The Darkside Detective is a micro-adventure game with a distinct art style and charm. It’s being developed for PC & Mac, and consists of a series of humorous bite-size investigations into the occult and extraordinary.
