Krafton launched official site of the project, where you can read about the authors’ sources of inspiration, as well as see the first drawings and concepts.

The images feature distinctive characters, such as an anthropomorphic rooster and a pale-faced lady in black. There are also classic Asian landscapes in the pictures: a temple on a mountain and a city with buildings reminiscent of Far Eastern architecture. Although one of the settlements is more reminiscent of Europe of the late Middle Ages.

Project Windless design director Ian McCaig said of the game’s original source: “The Bird That Drinks Tears is unlike any other fantasy story I’ve read, it explores human nature in a new way. That’s what appeals to me the most.” . It’s an epic on a par with The Lord of the Rings or Dune. The fantasy world is fresh and insightful, mixing traditional archetypes with dream and nightmare imagery that’s completely original. I was working on my own projects at the time, and being part of this project meant put them aside. It had to be something incredibly special for me to do that. As it turns out, it was.”
