Eighth race [SPOILERS (maybe)]

    So I have been researching the eighth race and after some research I found out that it was just cultists. First of all you probably know this fossil right?[​IMG]

    Welp it seems like a new race and has one eye just like the cthulhu in the Ark ruins.

    The Fossil is unidintified but is clearly a fossil of a cultist as you can see on the steam trading cards.
    [​IMG] Now you get the reassamblance right c:
    Well since it's "unidentified" they probably wanna hide it and so.

    Here is another thread that helped me:

    Please, try to keep duplicate topics at a minimum. This is easily something you could have posted in either of these threads instead of making a new one.

    Anyway, on topic, I personally don't think they're the same. For one, the cultist shown in the trading card has never appeared, leading me to believe it was Dummied Out, unless they intend to add them in at a later date (1.0 perhaps). It's possible the card was made before they had settled on the final for the cultists, and as such, doesn't fit the final design, and they added the fossil as a meta nod to the inconsistency. I hope you're correct about them being the same, as I'm very curious what these guys would have looked like pre-death.

    The cultists that are in the game, on the other hand, don't bear enough of a resemblance clothing-wise (and have a completely different bone structure than the creature shown there), including earlier designs clearly showing two eyes.

    I considered for a time that they might be the Eye Guard, mostly due to the slightly more correct height of the eye but quickly decided that if there is any relation, it isn't a species relation. In retrospect, they're probably just related to the eye biome. The cultists are seemingly worshipping the Ruin and potentially the 8th Race, so these guys are seperate, signified by their different attire. Eye color and pupil shape is wrong too.

    I remember the camera man's helmet that looks like his head. It's unavailable though.
