The evolution of Captain Welmu
From the first concept of the game the captain has always been heavily inspired by Star Trek as far as the clothing goes. The first draft of Welmu had him dressed in a gray body suite uniform. But, as the style of the game started to take form, we made him (a little) more colorful.
His original orange hair and somewhat wild hairstyle was an attempt to give a character, made with so few pixel, some kind of personality. But since the game is animated with sprites and the captain had to age, we gave him a more age neutral hair style.
The name Welmu is “borrowed” from a finnish StarCraft 2 player.
