Hey folks! This week we’re showing off another new monster from Cassette Beasts!
Southpaw is a fast-moving, fast punching metal-type beast. Their bodies are coated with a lightweight and flexible metal that allow them to withstand attacks and deliver swift attacks. Unlike Palangolin, which use heavy armour plating and long-range weapons to fight, transforming into Southpaw gives you a lightweight and aggressive form that allows for a more agile approach to battle.
It makes you wonder: what if Palangolin and Southpaw fused in battle?
While most of the monsters in Cassette Beasts are designed in-house at Bytten Studio, Southpaw was designed for us by character artist Sami Briggs (Smai). Sami has drawn some really cool art for the project, and Southpaw’s pixel art sprite was drawn based on her initial concept below:
When asked about her thoughts when designing Southpaw, Sami said:
“I love creating things that look cool, sharp and sometimes exaggerated, so I really wanted to design a beast that represents my style and tastes! I felt a half-wolf, half-robot boxer would be an interesting combo that best reflected what I was after!”
That’s all from us for now! You can follow us for more news on our Twitter page, and you can do the same for Sami if you’d like to see more of her work. Don’t forget, you can wishlist Cassette Beasts on Steam!
