We are excited to share with you the first concept of the Etta-Um alien, with a short description and a scaled representation of his dimensions.
If you want to discover the aliens only during the game, you may skip the chart below in order to avoid spoilers.
Called “The Supervisors” by the Ka-Um-Las and It-Um-Las, the elusive Etta-Um have avoided Terran Shield’s forces since the beginning of the conflict. The only captured specimen so far, has been found deep inside the underground labyrinth of the Lost Shrine of Um base on Borneo Island.
The preliminary analysis has revealed that the creature is some kind of evolved snail, possessing advanced mimetic abilities. It can easily duplicate the color of its environment and the shape of surrounding objects, in a much more complex manner than the octopus from our oceans can. Its protuberances can transform it in the shape of virtually any object, such as a tree branch, a complex coral or a rock cluster. Aided by its low body temperature, the Etta-Um is very hard to detect during missions. Any mission where an Etta-Um is in charge of a Ka-Um-La or It-Um-La squad is a tactical nightmare, because the Etta-Um supervisor hides themselves while coordinating the attack and while they are alive, the alien forces are much more unpredictable and deadly.
If the Etta-Ums control the soldiers and workers Um-Las, the massive Bogs and the savage warrior race of Glees, we can only speculate about the shadow masters that control the Etta-Ums, and their true motives for invading our planet.
