Enslaved - Monkey and Trip by Benlo Enslaved - Monkey and Trip by Benlo
A little fanart made to tribute Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I finished it just a few days ago and really enjoyed the game. To me, it was really underrated for a game with this quality to not get more attention. The Environment was awesome, the Story was great, and the little cut scene FMV's were very enjoyable. The only down side was the gameplay which was very easy. It was just a basic hack and slash, but it did coup well with the other stuffs you do inbetween. Things like swinging and climbing around, the nimbus cloud water surfings, and the boss fights were very fun. Anyway, do give it a try if you haven't played it yet.

I just finished this game and enjoyed it a great deal.  The controls were awful on the keyboard, though, so I had to buy myself a console controller to plug into my computer to help me move.  Even so, I enjoyed the setting and loved the characters and their chemistry.  Even though it cost me 20 more bucks for the controller (thankfully I got it on steam for like 4 dollars), I was glad I played it.

hahaha, 4 bucks is a great deal. Horizon Dawn Zero feels like an updated version of this game, the themes and setting feel very similiar. You should try it out if you haven't.

This game is such a underappreciated gem! I loved it, it was very awesome and reminds me a lot of Tim Burton's 9 in ways.

Nice tribute to it!

Sadly I don't have the system to play this game so I live vicariously through the Youtube videos and fantastic work like this. Hopefully we'll be seeing more from this game?

So many people have no clue what this game is! You're artwork really gives them justice, well done! (The art is so damn pretty in that game!)

This game needs much more love, but it's nice to see such beautiful fanart (Love how you use visible brushstrokes).

This is amazing. Just got the game and wish it got more credit and publicity because it is wonderful. If only they'd make a sequel. You really captured their faces and personalities!

This piece reaaally captures... well, everything! It fits the characters perfectly, and the dark, tense way they look is... again, perfect. In short, I'm lovin' this picture. <3

And I agree with you. After I played the game, I was shocked that I had not heard of it before. I didn't even have friends telling me about it. So I've decided to fill that space and spam about it all over my sites. xD

I'm felll in love with your painting ;)

greet job !
unlisshed Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011
This is bloody fantastic! I hope you don't mind, I submitted it to the Enslaved-OTTW group here at DA, it's just too good not to; the only reason I found this is because I was browsing for some great Monkey/Trip pics. I love the style, it's so unique. I also love their posturing/body language. Trip looks suitably helpless and Monkey is just fierce.

I also agree about the gameplay. It would have been awesome to have a more complex and dangerous climbing system, rather than the low-risk-nearly-impossible-to-die climbing system that it did have. I thought the combat was OK, I liked upgrading the weapons and such, but more rewards would have been nice.

Sorry, didn't mean to ramble. Well anyway, again, a fantastic job. Definitely going on my favourites!! XD

I saw this recently on another site, I really like it so i'm happy you've put it up on here. ^^ it's a really wonderful piece of art and you've put a lot of effort into making Trip and Monkey look as they are in the game but with a more art style to it. Love the expressions x3
