This psychotic steampunk snail was created as concept art for a new game called Alice: Madness Returns, released June 14, 2011.  Ken Wong, the artist who created this brilliant work, was also the art director for the new Alice project, a sequel to American McGee’s Alice that was released in October 2000.

So far, the game has been praised for its visuals and highly original graphics.

Here’s the trailer:

In case you didn’t know, the ommatophores or “eyestalks” of a snail are technically in the “tentacle” category according to Wikipedia.

Also, octopuses (octopi) technically do not have tentacles, they have arms.

Tentacles are also known as “muscular hydrostats” by the way.

You’re welcome.
