Markesha sees her home from an entirely new perspective.
It’s rare for anyone in the Outer City to ever see the breathtaking view from the Wall with their own eyes. There are only a few people in the HSF allowed to patrol the summit of the Wall, and far fewer from the Inner City who ever bother to take a look beyond the Wall which protects them. Markesha’s vantage point is a rare one indeed, as there are no observation areas or windows overlooking the outer city.
The Inner City, sticking to its name, doesn’t look outward, only inward on itself.
Markesha corrects with Audrey’s quick action, but the engineer may have overcompensated in her panic. Just a little. Okay, a lot.
The building codes and constant shifting of the outer city skyline means half of Markesha’s time is spent testing surfaces to find out if they’re stable or not. Sometimes that flimsy looking corrugated tin roof is steady as a rock. Sometimes that solid concrete wall will crumble away at the slightest pressure. Either way if there’s one lesson Markesha’s had to learn to live with it’s this: Falling is a given. Getting up is the important part.
Happy New Year, thank you so much for being a huge part of what makes Kamikaze the awesome experience it is!
The Animated Short and Comic Anthology Kickstarter just wrapped, and thanks to you it was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who backed, shared, or just generally cheered us on during this big climb over the past month! We’re excited about finally bringing Kamikaze to the screen, and bringing more creators into the fold to share their own Kamikaze stories.
Right now, the team is going to get some rest. We’ll be back at things full force next week as Markesha continues her climb up the wall!
Sometimes, you don’t need no stinking gravity pack.
We have just 6 days left on the Animated Short and Comics Anthology Kickstarter, and WE NEED YOUR HELP! Spread the word and donate if you can!
Despite all odds, the phrase “Piece of cake” has persisted in common use throughout Trinity. No one is really certain where the phrase came from, or why it means what it does. There’s even some strong contention on the entire concept of a cake being large enough to have pieces. Regardless, the saying remains.
Hey all! We’re hard at work with the Animated Short and Anthology Kickstarter, but still wanted to give you a shiny image this week! Go check out the Kickstarter if you haven’t had a chance, we’re just under two weeks away from our deadline and need your help to make this campaign a success!
Speaking of the Kickstarter, here’s a few awesome videos from the campaign you should check out. First up is an interview with Dani Chambers, our voice actress for Markesha!
And next, we’ve got an amazing character introduction video for Toro Blackthorne. Yes THAT Toro Blackthorne! He’s our villain for the animated short, and he’s voiced by the incredible Jonathan Young!
Working with the pack that can mess with gravity means odd things can happen to the human body. Audrey’s had to ensure that consumption of any kind of gas emitting foods or beverages are verboten before a run. This wouldn’t normally be an issue for the human body, but paired with constant warping gravity, normal human gas functions can cause an operative incapacitating stomach pains.
Markesha’s choice to trust Audrey pays off, but for how long?
Let’s say you’re inside Inner Trinity and the sun has just set. You look out from the balcony of your luxurious home in a House compound, and beyond the croplands to the massive Wall that protects your crops. You would see a warm glow that lightly rimmed the Wall from below – this would be the lights of the Outer City. On a clear night this warm light can look like an ever present after glow of the setting sun. Some residents of the Inner City find the sight romantic. Others don’t see the whimsical sun set. Instead, they see fire, and it reminds them of their precarious position in the Inner City. After all, there are more people beyond the Wall and power is a fickle mistress.
