    So, 1313 looks like it could be pretty good depending on the gameplay mechanics... I definitely like the setting. What do you think about the artwork?

    I found it particularly fascinating looking at the underground cityscape. If you notice, some building seems to be hanging UPSIDE DOWN. When I looked closer, I noticed a remarkable similarity to some buildings I've seen before somewhere... Here's a close-up, flipped:


    Here's the skyline of Hong Kong.[​IMG]

    They definitely use at least TWO iterations of Two Financial Centre, and THREE versions of The Center, and possibly a distortion of the Bank of China Tower. Some of the other buildings look familiar too, but I don't think they're from Hong Kong. I thought maybe Dubai or Shanghai, but I couldn't nail it down.
    Below is a comparison of the two. I'm not saying the artists necessarily got lazy, but he or she definitely is a fan of Hong Kong (as am I!)


    Interesting, no?
