In doing the design on the Rain Faction’s Ice Golem, Storm Isle Productions set out to create a unit that would not only be easy to spot, both in the game world but also become iconic.
In Disciples of the Storm, each faction has basic golems that can be constructed as initial resource collectors. Storm Isle plans to give each of the four faction’s golem their own unique look to be connected to the player’s chosen faction.
In ancient times it was believed that golems were vessels created from clay and brought to life by scrolls placed inside them. However, in Disciples of the Storm they are using spirits of captured priests that have been offered up to the Tempest as a sacrifice.
For the Rain Faction, Storm Isle went for an imposing design that embodied the element of water and carried over the priest’s headdress and mask theme, having tribalistic look for the main body. Its massive structure and strength able to collect and immobilized enemy priests.
In the past few days the Disciples Of The Storm Kickstarter has raised $2,864 in backing since launch and earned the Kickstarter staff pick selection.
