X the Game

by Jennie Labrecht
Artist Statement

I am creating a role playing video game, currently titled “X” the game. Using a hybrid process of hand drawn and digital techniques to create the art in “X”. “X” is a fantasy/ horror RPG set in a world similar to the early 1800's that tackles themes of the occult, conspiracies, religion, and exploration.

Like movies, video games are not only a source of entertainment, but can be works of art, telling engaging stories that can change with the players actions. My inspirations for making “X”, is the game director Yoko Taro, and the games Xenogears (1998) by Squaresoft, and the 1990s Qunintet games Illusion of Gaia, and Terranigma.
