During an indie game developer panel, Jake Kazdal from Haunted Temple reflected about his work at United Game Artists, the Sega owned studio behind Rez and Space Channel 5. Kazdal, who was an artist on both titles, shared parts of Sega’s style guide for Space Channel 5.
Sega created the document before Kazdal joined the Space Channel 5 team. You can see influences from 2001: A Space Odyssey above and below an actress who inspired the game’s lead character. Perhaps, the neatest addition is alternate artwork for Ulala who looks like she stepped out of Aeon Flux.
