Kraang -> Umgah?
« on: July 17, 2016, 08:35:25 pm »

I'm watching TMNT with my children, and I got to thinking... Umgah look a lot like Kraang. 

Anyone else notice similarities like this?  Just a quick check in my head doesn't result in anything.

Krang is far more anthropomorphic. They both draw on the classic 'brain in a vat' idea, drawn in the direction of 'freestanding brain-being'.

Also very similar are the Spemin from the old game Starflight, released in 1986 (1) and 1989 (2).



I wish, there would be a remake for this too with better graphics, it was a great sci-fi adventure game.
By the way, Star Control was inspired by this game and has a lot of marked similarities to Starflight.
