My design process includes building the world and its characters in conjunction with the game mechanics. One of the principle characters in Lair is the main boss, inspired by the various Bond villains.
The design for Mr. White has evolved over the years. He adopted a one-eyed bulldog named Mr. Fleming and gave it a cybernetic eye that is wirelessly connected to his own bionic eye. Mr. Fleming helps him keep an eye on his organization and minions.
