Lab specimen concepts
What’s a good sci-fi game or movie without alien specimens in a jar?
That’s what long-time NS artist Cory thinks at least. So he created these sketches for a lab where scientists are studying the Kharaa. While NS took place during "first contact", NS2 has both sides studying each other. This sketch explains the concept:

In other news, our new website launch last Friday night (Saturday morning actually) seemed to go quite smoothly. It’s always scary to work on something for so long without external feedback and testing and then to suddenly launch it, but it worked out great. The new site is humming along without any crashes or errors even with a couple hundred of you online!
We’re going to love spending more of our time on the game and giving you updates more often. Hope you enjoy it!
