Ricardo coelho keyframe 01 visual

View of the world being consumed by the mold spots, spreading and consuming nature around. This is how the world became to fall to the Leviathans.

Ricardo coelho keyframe 02 descending2

Descent of mankind to the mold spots, before the mold spots evolved, before the rise of the leviathans. An earthquake shook the world, and 5 huge holes appeared through the planet in a blink of an eye.

Ricardo coelho keyframe 03 silence

This melancholy shows the state of mind of the survivors. What is there worth living? Can we even get back what we have lost? Where are our heroes? How are they like? A new generation that never had memories to miss? If so...What would they fight for?

Ricardo coelho keyframe 04 sentinels

The Sentinels roam the world as a reflection of ourselves like if it is trying to mimic us, to understand us. Or maybe just to mock us, fragile little beings that we are.

Ricardo coelho keyframe 05 sample

Dr. Ayako is the biologist that leads the study of the Yomi mold, she goes to the heart of the mold and seeks to get a sample of the fungus. If we know what we are fighting maybe we know how to kill it.

Ricardo coelho keyframe 06 thrive

Weird, the more the planet was consumed by the Yumi mold, the more bugs were appearing. How is it possible? Maybe... this was the clue we were missing.

Ricardo coelho keyframe 07 procedure

Dr. Ayako means might not be the more ethical, but they showed results, taking the biological structure of bugs and merge it with the Yumi it self on the human body was not easy, but I worked. What good are ethic and morality if we are dead?
