Hey there folks. Today’s post is going to be short, but sweet. It’s my birthday today, and it’s my best friend Kev’s birthday tomorrow.
When I first conceptualized Tellest, a lot of my friends were stand-ins for the characters in my mind. That happens, I suppose, when you’re seventeen and you’re using videogames where you can make your own characters as your starting point!
With that said, Kaos and Steel Tip were fairly obvious references to me and Kev. While a lot has changed in the series since then, and things are changing even more in the next few years, taking us further from these characters as we knew them, I’ll always remember the time where these two heroes were the two of us.
Thank you to Leo for taking these characters, and putting a spin on them so that they looked like the two of us. Happy early birthday to Kev!
