Hey everyone! This was my entry to a monster design contest held by the fantastic folks over at Starbound
The Poptop is going to be featured as a monster in the game when it releases later this year, and I'll be honest, I am totally thrilled to see how it will be implemented.
Thanks again to the good people of Chucklefish, for holding a contest like this and really bringing their community together. You can check out the other winners via the link above! The Throg and Bad Moon were particular favorites of mine.
