This was a commission requested by Nick Wozniak aka @norkwoz
I really went overboard with this as he only requested a single stage diorama and I ended up making a five-stage one which spanned countless layers, 44 different PSD files, 709 frames of animation and tweens.
Nick wanted to have a couple of the enemies from the Explodatorium featured in the diorama so I just went and threw in everything you could encounter in the whole thing (besides the miniboss). As much as possible, I also tried to incorporate the majority of Plague Knight and Shovel Knight’s arsenal into the whole sequence. To top it off, I made sure that it loops together nicely enough.
