As it turns out, the region of Avalonia where the Clades live is actually on the shell of a giant turtle that swims around the oceans.

Additionally, the creatures encountered by the Clades when attacking the pando in the “Other World” are actually aspects of the turtle’s immune system.

The pando plant, around which Avalonia has structured its society, is poisonous to the giant tortoise – leading the Clades to realize that radical change is needed to secure the future of their society.

In conversation with GamesRadarDirectors Don Hall and Qui Nguyen broke down the twist.

“The moment you put a company in a movie, you’re like, ‘You’re the bad guy!'” Hall said. “Especially if it was oil and you’re like, ‘Okay, I see where this is going.’ For us it was, ‘How do we disguise it and slowly reveal that it’s an environmental film?’

“So we just felt like, especially when Searcher discovers it and then essentially becomes Pando’s father, it really puts him at the center of this green energy revolution, which he then, when it becomes a detriment, takes responsibility for eradicating it.” handles it,” he added.

“And that’s how we were able to dive into our environmental story in a slightly sneaky way, instead of loading it from the front and having viewers roll their eyes because they’re like, ‘I see where this is going.'”
