Glitchpop skins are available in the store August 4. pic. twitter. “Glitchpop was an opportunity for us to take inspiration from the cyberpunk genre with our own fresh take on it,” says Chris Stone, senior weapons artist on Valorant. “There are so many amazing representations of the cyberpunk genre so we didn’t want to lean too heavily towards any one of them.
As we further developed glitchpop, a question that kept arising was how to balance all of the visual noise in order to fit within the established Valorant art style. “From a design standpoint, we simplified the shape language to allow for the stickers, glitch effect, and projector to stand on their own.
They’re certainly different from what’s in Valorant right now, which was exactly the point. “Glitchpop was an opportunity for us to make something loud, bold, and more colorful compared to a lot of the other skins we were making, which were more serious and dark,” says Stone.
