Jungle 1 is digitally created concept art of the video game Killzone 3. Pictures of plants and mushrooms have been photoshopped to create the atmosphere for a location called Kaznan Jungle.
In the video game Kaznan Jungle is the location of the hidden remnant ISA troops under the command of Captain Jason Narville. The jungle is home to many dangerous fauna and flora, including the exploding "burster" plants, as well as other attacking spiders and foliage. During the Kaznan Jungle mission the video game characters Sev and Kowalski employ a variety of stealth tactics to subdue an alarmingly large number of Helghast soldiers.
Killzone is one of the most visually impressive game series of the start of this century. The prizewinning and lauded franchise serves as a graphical and technical benchmark for Sony’s PlayStation consoles.
Killzone is about war. Aesthetically the games are science-fiction interpretations of WWII. Although the series has gradually become more exotic with locations featuring green skies and blue-hued jungles. As can been seen in concept artworks such as Jungle & The Massar Constant. Yet Killzone has always tried to depict a more raw and realistic version of science fiction warfare than other big game series. Concept art such as Derelict and Phyrrus Nuked Visari have that somber palet and almost depressed melancholic atmosphere associated with WWII and WWI. The uniforms and enemies are also based on those of the German, Russian and Allied forces of that era.
The concept art also calls to mind more recent conflicts. Collateral could almost be 9/11 news footage and battles are fought out over oil rigs in frozen arctic environments. An internal studio illustration such as Last of the Heroes evokes the archetypical image of the forgotten Vietnam war veteran.
