Development

Nest SC2 GameOld1

The former nest

The initial game mechanics of the baneling were simple: an upgrade was researched at the spawning pool which allowed zerglings to morph into banelings. Later design decisions thoughtfully concluded that there should be a building to visually indicate the technology available to a zerg player. Thus, the art team developed the baneling nest[1] The "nest",[2] as designed by Jesse Brody[1] appeared prior to WWI 08.[3]

The final art pass, which deviated from the old "nest" concept, was carried out by Phill Gonzales. He was interested in making a large, bloated baneling "brood mother" planted on the creep, too fat to move and instead serving as a building. Samwise Didier however, liked Brody's old concept and made the baneling brood mother be attached to the main growth of the building, rather than being a building in itself.[1]
