We’re returning to the art of XCOM 2 today for a third time, because artist Dongmin Shin has shared some of his cute-as-hell poster art that adorns the walls of the game’s world.

As shown off on the game’s blog, these cute little designs of the game’s bad guys were originally intended as posters for XCOM 2's human kids, but when even these caricatures turned out scary, they were moved over to adult propaganda posters.

Also cool? The game’s Alien-backed fast food advertising, which had to intentionally look nothing like anything we normally associate with the market. Hence the clean, abstract designs here, which more like retro olympics posters than food ads.

You can check out more of the in-game posters and advertisements below. And you can see more of Shin’s work at his ArtStation page.
