The Core Harvesters

Mining, core harvesting and resource management is paramount for the continuation of the human species. In order to accumulate the vast resources needed to expand, the E-Class core harvesters were developed. These crafts are virtually cities of their own.

With a length of 2000 meters (about half the length of central park), a width of 500 meters and a height of 300 meters (about the height of the Eiffel Tower) they’re massive constructs. They contain approximately 30 decks and enough material to set up a large mining colony or several small ones. These beasts are out for months, carrying thousands of miners and engineers. We have our illustrator Henrik Karppinen to thank for this beautifully composed version of a Thor E-Class harvester.

More Creatures

Recently we have begun to really get into the horror and creature aspect of the game. Our illustrator, Johan Fredriksson, have been working with some early black and white concepts which we’re quite happy with. Cold & Dark will have a nasty selection of inhuman antagonists. This bastard is not something you want to run into while taking a stroll down to engineering.

The Bridge

Here’s a conceptualization showing the bridge of an E-Class ship. These two kilometer long behemoths make out one of the most important parts of the mining industry.
