Maybe you do not know, but you’ve been watching Greentooth for years in your favorite games, from The Division to Spider-Man or The Sims 4. Many artists have included this icon in their work, do you know what it means? It’s the Polycount logo, a digital community of 3D artists.
Greentooth works like an Easter egg among artists who work in games and use it as a professional wink. There are documented sightings of this icon since 2011, in Battlefield 3, some very obvious, others really hidden and difficult to find, such as Wolfenstein: The New Order. Roadhog, the character of Overwatch, wears a badge with the logo on his vest, for example.
This is an industry curiosity that unifies very different titles, and that serves to support this platform where you can enjoy works as this tribute from an artist from Naughty Dog to Shadow of the Colossus.
