Which game inspired you and why?
When I read the text about the competition I felt inspired by the words themselves, especially in regards to wishes for a better future. This made me think of a game that portrays quite a dreary future, the post-apocalyptic landscape in Fallout. I wanted to make a piece inspired by this game where I included both past and future, focusing on both hope for the future and the cost of war juxtaposed with childish innocence. Thus this image was born, set in a distant future where a past nuclear wasteland has now been reclaimed by nature, and people. But remnants of the past can still be found in some places. In this piece, we see a girl paying a visit to such a location. Here we find a powered exoskeleton (of course, inspired by the iconic Fallout power armours) and the old bones belonging to soldiers from a distant past (inspired by the myriad of skeletons that tell a story that can be found in various Fallout games). But at least these people have not been forgotten by the current inhabitants of this land.
