Concept of an alternative transport vehicle for the game universe Hollow Knight. Design was inspired by the Dung Beetles.

A palanquin, like a monocycle, pushed by a large beetle. In the past, he served the bourgeoisie of an ancient kingdom of termites, inside a large tree, which is now shattered over a desert of cold sands.

Brilliant idea! Just one thing to ask, deos it roll like a ball, all it is just something with cycles under it, and pushed by the dung beetle, like you say, motorcycle?

Big issue. You would fly around like CRAZY in that thing when it starts to roll. Would be a nice carnival ride though. HMMMMMMMMMMMM...

Would explain the dung beetles circus outfit.

This hypothetical kingdom seems like it'd be an amazing world to explore.

Though how does the rolling palanquin work? Does only the outer part rotate as it's rolled along while the inside remains relatively still?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, it would be similar to the behavior of a monocycle.

Creative as balls. 



Get it? 'Cause it's a ball.



Not that I consider balls creative.



I wanna die.
