    Default Was alot of the Art in Rift inspired by H.R. Giger?

    Seems like a lot of the levels Death Rifts, Sertos zones Rift Raid bosses seem inspired by Ginger in some way.
    I bet he had lots of people influenced over the years his name would always come up.

    not really. with the exception of a few parts of endless eclipse, nothing in RIFT even comes close to HR Giger's art.

    could you please tell us exactly what you saw that was so similar?

    Just seen this today I know he was a huge influence in the fantasy art field and for comic books.

    It's possible, everybody has their own art style, but everybody's style is influenced in some way by the styling of artists they have studied and admired in the past. It's highly likely that some of the artwork was unintentionally and subconsciously inspired by Gigers work, just like much of Gigers art was inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, Ernst Fuchs and Salvador Dalí combined with his own nightmares.

    Oddly enough I actually know one of the artists that assisted Giger on Alien 3 and have actually held one of the original Alien head models
