THE LAST CIGARETTE ON EARTH:
A Steampunk Adventure
In a parallel-future world flying locomotives and mechanical heli-horses populate the sky, skyscrapers protrude from the clouds & the moon is a huge garbage dump kept afloat by steam power. Somewhere in that huge steampunk world, a small story begins and ends with the last cigarette on earth. It’s a heist & chase adventure, building up from small to large. And you’re all invited.
"The Last Cigarette On Earth" is one mans two-year adventure to stop smoking.
Matic: "For more than half my life, I was a smoker. Now, I’m not talking about occasional smoking; I’m talking about the real deal, “more-than-a-pack-a-day” type of smoker. Occasional chain smoker. So, I got this bright idea of starting a project, whose progress would walk hand in hand with building up my determination and ability to stop smoking. The deal I made with myself was – finish the project, quit smoking. Sounds good, right? Well, nope. Since the faiths of both the project and quitting my unhealthy habit were so closely intertwined, I took my sweet time with the project. Because, deep down, I wanted to - I can keep on smoking throughout the whole process, right?
...In the end it took me so long, that I simply…stopped smoking first...
Finished the project nonetheless - as a non-smoker!"
So, with high hopes it inspires someone to stop looking for excuses to keep on smoking, we dedicate this to you, future non-smoker!

BREAKDOWN & PROCESS:

The razor girl heroine and the steampunk world she inhabits didn’t just appear out of nowhere. With the help of free 3d models, which we got from archive3d.net, turbosquid.com and tf3dm.com, Matic was able to carefully nurture, sculpt and create a world for her to live in. So here’s a short breakdown on how that process happened.
