Diesel City-Mid Level

I went back to Diesel City, today, to document the mid-level habitat. If, like me, you love design and typography, this level is a showcase of wonderful typefaces and fonts from the early 1900’s…

… I didn’t see a single anachronistic lettering style…

… I particularly like this era of lettering and advertising, so I actually got more enjoyment from wondering through these streets, looking at the advertising, than I got from the actual environment! But, that’s not at all to say I didn’t enjoy the environment… this is my third post about it, after all…

… It would be marvelous if the creator didn’t take this build down, because I’ll be surprised if this iteration can be bettered…

… I just love these wonderful details, they are what create the stunning verisimilitude of this magnificent alternative world…

… one of the things that has delighted me most about this version of Drune is the total lack of juvenile porn imagery, something that always annoyed me in the previous versions, it’s been so refreshing looking at gorgeous typography, instead of manga images of tentacle rape. So, I wasn’t too surprised when I found the ‘Black Pussy’ nightclub. It’s beautiful deco trappings almost make up for the offensive, sleazy name. I was also not too surprised when I tried sitting in a seat in the little cinema I found, and saw that one of the female sit poses was ‘masturbation’. Still, the bulk of this build is far more mature, and sophisticated than any of its predecessors…

… once again, gorgeous detail…

… after I’d been around the mid-level a few times, I was drawn, again, to the ground level, where I found something I’d missed the first time; a hidden submarine pen. Once again, I felt like Tintin, in some Biggles-like adventure with Captain Haddock…

… while I was clambering over the still-wet submarine, I heard muffled shrieks and thumps from an area I hadn’t gone into, yet, and someone squealing ‘Demon!’…

… I found the room the sounds had come from, but it’s occupants had fled. I guess they think they saw a demon, somewhere (:
