This sure was an experience. I loved the serious tone with the beginning that drops off with the crab reveal. All the mech stuff and moving bits were great too. Fun little piece about sad snail (?) soldiers.
Thanks for checking it out! Yeah I had the ending joke in mind when I started, so I thought the gradual descent into nonsense would be a fun. Yes they are sad snails, sad sea snails to be exact! I was inspired by the Strombus_alatus, also known as the Florida Fighting Conch for their design and the mech shape!
