Forged in Fire
New Order as an enemy.


Winzells' portrait was inspired by some pareidolia on a photo of tangled branches:

Docent was very consistent about separating his life and activities within HotA and beyond, so we would prefer not to delve into the side of his personality that lay outside the project. However, these two worlds of his life still intertwined; sometimes it seemed that he never stopped looking for inspiration in everything around him, to later introduce it into the game. I remember how he showed me a random photo of some tangled tree branches; at first I had no idea what his point was, and then he added just a few brush strokes, revealing the face of a grumpy old man in a top hat amidst this interplay of light and shadow. Today, you can see it in the game: this image was the origin of the hero Winzells’ portrait. --Tevye, HotA team interview
