Ah yes of course. I often find it difficult to tell the location from low res shots and distortions.

Okay this is (kind of) new to me lol

So I looked more thoroughly this website, and found this image called "skaarjsymbol.jpg".

It's in very good quality.
I've seen this symbol in a very unknown magazine before, but couldn't place it anywhere like, what's this? But know it makes more sense.
Very weird.

And apparently Erik De Neve made a snow Skaarj in march lol but unfortunately the images won't load in

Its not necesarily Gina but more like the main character they intended. Also the Gina name only came up quite late in developement iirc. But yea. Also it means that she was incarcerated in Canada but that doesn't necesarily mean she was Canadian to begin with. She might be also partially native american, which would actually make sense.

as for your other post, I did speak to Erik De Neve a long ago...wish you pointed me to this back then as I would have asked him if he still had that photo somewhere.

As for that Skaarj symbol...well I did see it before and I assumed it was related to perhaps another game, like y'know, Circle had pretty different design, I know this wasn't from Circle, but..something else maybe. It almost looks fitting into KHG. But yea....interesting find. Pretty different take.

EDIT: btw come to think of it, those rooms etc in the artwork might have been recreated at one point in developement for some example triggerlight maps and such...thinking about it. Or even for the actual intro that got cut at one point.

Found this screenshot of beta Ruins from a PC Joker CD, thought it was interesting enough to upload here too

Also, a Gamestar preview of Unreal Tournament (1999 March 18th) got uploaded in the Videos folder. Check it out.
It's this one but in a bit better quality:
