Hello! We’ve been analyzing what makes people spend more time on wikis and we’ve identified something. It’s comments! Having comments enabled on a wiki gives it a boost to the time people spend on the pages and engage with the wiki.
We would like to enable comments on your wiki to help it grow as part of an experiment.
This will not happen if you don’t agree with trying this out! It’s entirely up to you!
We believe that this experiment will help your wiki and if you have any problems along the way we can always roll back and disable comments.
So, what do you think? Are you interested in trying this with us? We’d love to work with you to help grow your community!
I have converted the last of the old-style infoboxes to the new format. Please take a look at Film_reviews/Draft for a demonstration and see if it meets with your approval. Let me know if you have any suggestions or questions. Thanks!
I've been speaking about this with Riley. Why is this an issue? FFS, Dorian has never been shown to have died. Let's just jump the gun and make all number of assumptions, shall we? Flare1983 (talk) 02:06, September 2, 2019 (UTC)
On p.199 of Resident 5: The Complete Official Guide, it states in an interview that the Popokarimu is a Bat/Silkworm hybrid that's infected with a plaga parasite:
Early images of Popokarimu suggest a hybrid creature that looks more like a bat and a scorpion combined. What were the reasons for this particular design?
Jiro Taoka, Lead Designer: Popokarimu is a combination of bat and silkworm, invented when we planned to create a flying boss enemy. We heightened the red color on the weak point (abdomen) after play testing as it was decided it would be good to have this reflect the glowing of the sunset.
Yoshinori Matsushita, Modeler: We kept the idea that Popokarimu is a huge bat infected by Plaga but we changed his appearance from adult insect with hard shell to young, worm-like larva. The reason for this alteration was the look of the early image. That creature had too strong of a fantasy element, and lacked a sense of revulsion. So we changed him to increase the visual impact.
sorry for the late reply, been absent here a lot recently...
It was the guide published by Prima Games / PiggyBack Interactive, with the questions proposed to the dev team when asked about the various concept arts depicted different insect-like appearances for the Popokarimu prior to the finalized design.
And as my direct copy of the interview transcript implies, the Popokarimu is also allegedly a male of its species...
Whether that's worth noting or not, seeing as an insect's sexual dimorphism is frequently more dramatic than other species, meaning a theoretical female Popokarimu could've potentially looked far different, had such a thing existed.
