Some environmental practice! Displays from our Friendly Local Game Store (I call it Crazy Ray's Discount Space Wolf Emporium), service windows at a government office, a plant in a waiting room, and these plastic chairs from church (AKA my childhood!).

This shot: a rabbit teleportation demonstration, + some environment practice of the lobby where the main char escapes to (the rabbit demo didn’t go over so well).
